North Link Connections Mobility Board 申請


Solicitud para el Consejo de Movilidad de North Link Connections Mobility Board Application



Metro is currently recruiting members to be part of our Mobility Board for the North Link Connections Mobility Project. We are looking for community members who live, work, or travel in the area to help Metro develop bus service changes and new mobility options as well as advise on ways Metro can engage with the community.

Metro aims to convene a Mobility Board that equitably represents groups of people who have historically been left out of decision-making conversations related to transit and who are disproportionately affected by these decisions.

These groups of people include black, indigenous, and people of color; people with physical and/or cognitive disabilities; people with low- to no-income; people experiencing homelessness or housing insecurity; immigrants and/or refugees; and people with limited English proficiency. Metro recognizes that people can have multiple identities from which they experience both privilege and oppression, and we encourage those who identify as coming from multiple un(der)served groups to apply to serve on the North Link Connections Mobility Board. 

Required meetings/participation

  • Board members attend regular meetings and participate in public meetings and events to engage with the local community.
  • The Mobility Board will gather in August 2019 (specific dates to be determined) for two half-day trainings (equity and social justice training and a service planning training) and one full-day workshop.
  • Following these trainings/workshops, Board members will collaborate with Metro staff in-person and/or remotely to continue to develop and refine a proposal for change. They will also share this proposal with the community so they have the opportunity to weigh in on the changes being considered this fall and spring of 2020. This may include board members meeting in additional workshops and supporting the presentation of the final network proposal to King County Council. 
  • The planning process is expected to last through March of 2020


Mobility Board members will be compensated $50 per hour for their work in meetings/workshops and engagement conducted in the community.


This application will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.

1. Build authentic and lasting relationships with historically un(der)served populations in the project study area.

2. Design final changes in partnership with historically un(der)served communities in order to build a strong transit network that increases access and mobility, especially for those who are disproportionately affected by transit inequities.

3. Communicate the service proposal goals and Metro's goals related to equitable outcomes to the broaded affted communities, demonstrating how the service proposal helps Metro advance equitable outcomes in the study area.
