Mirror staff reports:

On May 21, Senior Services will introduce a new van service in Federal Way for seniors ages 55 and older and people with disabilities of all ages.

The Hyde Shuttles offer free door-to-door service throughout the Federal Way city limits, transporting riders to the Federal Way Community Center, grocery shopping, the library, bank, to visit a friend, cultural and social activities, medical appointments, and any local errands.

Riders register for service by phone. There is no application to fill out or in-person eligibility screening. Riders may request service up to 30 days in advance and same-day service on a space available basis. The shuttles are lift-equipped for people who have difficulty using stairs or use a mobility aid. Hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The shuttles are free, although donations are accepted.

Senior Services operates the Hyde Shuttles in partnership with King County Metro. To request a ride or learn more, call (206) 727-6262.

The transportation program has 30 shuttles on the road successfully serving other communities in King County.
