Free summer shuttle (W.A.R.T.) returns
The City of Woodinville and King County Metro have joined forces again this year to provide free transportation for Northshore area youth to and from various summer recreation activities and facilities. Initiated as a pilot program in 1997, Woodinville City Council directed staff from the Parks and Recreation and Public Works Departments to coordinate the service with King County Metro for the 1998 summer break. "We received good response last year and look forward to serving more youth this year," says Cindy Shelton, Recreation Coordinator. "We've added some new sites, including Woodinville's new Cineplex Odeon Theater in downtown Woodinville," she adds.
W.A.R.T. will begin shuttle service June 22 and end August 14. Shuttle hours will be 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. The 14-passenger van will be picking up and dropping off riders at the following shuttle stops: Woodinville sites include: Woodinville City Hall/ C.O. Sorenson School, Cineplex Odeon Movie Theater, Woodinville Heights Park, Woodin Creek Park, Cottage Lake Park and Pool, Woodinville High School, Leota Jr. High School, Woodinville Library. Bothell sites will be: Woodmoor Elementary, Northshore Pool/Bothell Library. Kingsgate Library, Kirkland.
