Public transportation - TRAILHEAD DIRECT

On weekends and designated holidays, Trailhead Direct takes riders to three hiking destinations: Mount Si, Issaquah Alps, and Mailbox Peak. All buses are run by King County and regular fares apply, just like in the city. By establishing this service, Trailhead Direct aims to increase accessibility to local trails, limit vehicle congestion in trailhead parking lots, and reduce carbon emissions. If you will have a group of more than 10 people, please fill out this form to reserve seating.
