Try out the King County Metro’s new ride-hailing app for on-demand service between Eastgate P&R and nearby neighborhoods
A new ride-hailing app for on-demand service is available for transit riders who would normally travel short distances for transit connections to or from Eastgate park and ride lot, and connect to bus service to Downtown Seattle, the University District, Downtown Bellevue, and Issaquah.

The weekday peak hour on-demand first and last mile service is part of a pilot project called Ride2.

Embracing the mobile technology of the Ride2 app, King County Metro plans to make it easier than ever to get to work and home again each day without having to drive or park.

To this user of OneBusAway for his real-time data and Google Maps for his trip planning, the interface is (for the most part) pretty good, not noticeably better or worse than the alternatives. It adds some functions that don’t have a good mobile alternative. But the application is still hamstrung by a back end with deep technical flaws.The Trip Planner App integrates four different functions: a trip planner (obviously), route schedules, real-time bus arrival, and Metro alerts. I’ll take them each in turn.Trip Planner. Google Maps starts with a map, and there are a few additional taps to bring out transit and call up any time rather than right now. Trip Planner takes you right to the appropriate screen with Start, End, and time inputs. However — and this is crucial — it is much worse than Google at taking a random place name (e.g., “Facebook”) and turning it into a usable location. And only some of the screens replace internal route numbers (Link is the “599”) with their commonly known names.Screenshot_2015-01-15-10-31-57What about the algorithm? The regional trip planning algorithm has longstanding, well-documented problems with nonsensical results, and my spot checking suggests that hasn’t changed.

If you want to travel around in a convenient and hassle-free manner while not burdening the pocket too much, then the public transportation,i.e., metro will prove to be the best option for you. Most of the tourist attractions are always within the vicinity of metro stations. You should plan your trip with our capital metro trip planner and see what stop is there and how far it is from your place of visit. Get ready to plan hassle-free all over the metro routes. The commuting has never been that fast, easy and inexpensive as made by the metro.To pay for the metro ride, you have to purchase a metro smart card. This is a convenient payment method which will allow you to save both your time and money. The trip planner will even let you know the total expense of metro for the complete trip.
