Tribal Transportation: Making the Employment Connections for the Stillaguamish

This article reports on the experiences of a small Native American Tribe in northern Washington, located 45 miles from Seattle, in helping solve transportation problems for its members. They are dispersed throughout a large area, although they only number some 300 people. The transportation plan coincided with the development of a new casino, prompting the need for reliable transportation for workers there. Several modes of service have been implemented or will be implemented as economic development continues to bring more employers to the area. A fixed-route loop service will connect at least five tribal facilities. A dial-a-ride service is planned for elderly passengers and a youth service for after school and health programs. Finally, a shuttle service will help carry employees and customers to the Tribe’s casino and other work sites.
