Help Getting Around – The Hopelink Mobility Management team empowers people to change their lives by facilitating access to the community. We provide travel education and resources through three training programs in King County. We also help to facilitate the coordination of special needs transportation to better serve the community..
Getting Around Puget Sound (GAPS)
This program connects King County residents with information about travel options, increasing independence and mobility. GAPS volunteer travel trainers provide one-on-one transportation assistance in community centers, libraries and gathering places. Want to be a Getting Around Puget Sound (GAPS) Volunteer?

Hopelink partners with social services agencies and community organizations to provide travel training and resources to employees who work with clients. Increase client independence and mobility through reliable transportation information and education about options “beyond the bus.” Want to provide this resource to your staff and clients?
Mobilize! Public Transit Orientation
Hopelink’s Travel Programs provide Public Transit Orientation (PTO) excursions to groups unfamiliar with the transportation system in the Puget Sound. This program is aimed at increasing independence and mobility of the participants on public transportation through guided trips to cultural and educational sites, service locations or outdoor events. Agencies may determine the trip destination. Pre-trip instruction is included and bus/transit fares are provided.
