The Hyde Shuttle program was created in 1997 and is named in honor of Lillian May Hyde, a longtime Seattle resident whose generous bequest provides funding for the Hyde Shuttles and aids countless seniors and people with disabilities in our community. Through our partnership with King County Metro, the Washington State Department of Transportation and Aging and Disability Services, we now have 38 vans on the road!
“The Hyde Shuttle is an absolute Godsend and mere words cannot convey the appreciation I have for the services that you all provide! From the schedulers, to the dispatchers, to the drivers, every single person I have ever come in contact with has been courteous, professional and extremely kind. If it wasn’t for your organization I would be a complete shut-in, and a very depressed one at that. Because of you, I have some independence and that speaks volumes.”
“I live 55 miles from my parents and gladly take them to their doctor appointments but in an effort to make my parents more independent, we decided they’d sign up for Hyde Shuttle. Driver Rick was wonderful about making my folks feel comfortable. He was friendly and warm. My folks were smiling and giddy when they returned and as Rick left he shook our hands and encouraged my folks to use Hyde Shuttle again.”
