According to user surveys, King County’s Trailhead Direct shuttle earned top reviews–but not many riders–on its debut run last August through mid-October. The shuttle, designed to fix parking and congestion problems at popular Issaquah-area trailheads such as Poo Poo Point, Margaret’s Way, and East Sunset Way, carried about 900 total hikers. An average of 40 people used it each weekend day of operation.
