Snoqualmie Valley Transportation (SVT) has won a VISION 2050 Award from the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC). This award recognizes SVT’s role in connecting communities throughout the Snoqualmie Valley. The City of Snoqualmie wrote a letter of support as part of the PSRC application process.
The VISION 2050 Awards recognize innovative work by jurisdictions, Tribes, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and other groups in the region to create a better future for central Puget Sound. The Vision Award was given to SVT as part of the “Working Together” category, which recognizes cross-jurisdictional partnerships.
Snoqualmie Mayor Katherine Ross stated, “SVT benefits residents by giving them options for transportation and services, bolstering the health and strength of the community.”
Amy Biggs, SVT Director, noted “SVT is honored to provide mobility services to the people of the Snoqualmie Valley. It’s a responsibility and a privilege that we hope to have for many years to come.”
SVT Contributions to the Snoqualmie Valley
Access to public transportation is a vital resource for City of Snoqualmie residents, no matter what their age. It is also critical for our businesses and future economic development to have robust transportation options available. SVT fills a huge gap for residents due to limited King County metro routes in the Snoqualmie Valley because of our size and rural location.
Josh Brown, Executive director of PSRC, noted “Snoqualmie Valley Transportation provides excellent transit service with door-to-door and fixed route options through ingenuity and meaningful partnerships.”
The City of Snoqualmie provided a letter of support in this award. Mount Si Senior Center and the City of North Bend also assisted with this award.
