From critical trips to kidney dialysis and chemotherapy treatments for cancer patients, to daily trips

From critical trips to kidney dialysis and chemotherapy treatments for cancer patients, to daily trips to Children’s Hospital and for seniors who must have routine medical visits to avoid nursing homes, transportation can make the crucial difference between being homebound and isolated, or healthy and active.

Hopelink Transportation includes three programs: DART Transit, Medicaid Transportation and Mobility Management.

Dart Transit

Hopelink provides public DART Transit through a contract with King County Metro. DART offers bus routes in some neighborhoods using mini buses that can go off regular routes to pick up and drop off passengers. DART operates on a fixed schedule, but one that has more flexibility than regular Metro Transit buses. Standard public transit fare applies to this service.

To schedule a DART ride, please submit a request through the DART Ride Request page, or call 866.261.DART during the specified hours that can be found on the DART Ride Request page. 

Medicaid Transportation

Hopelink also provides Non-Emergency Medical Transportation in King and Snohomish counties for medical services covered by Medicaid.
