Upcoming Events & Classes
Take a Field Trip With Us
Join us for a field trip this spring and practice using public transportation! Senior Center staff will lead outings using the Metro bus to fun destinations around the city.
We will provide a step-by-step tutorial that covers timetables, bus types and trip planning—and we’ll answer your questions about public transit. This is a great way for people who are not familiar using public transportation to try it in a safe, group setting.
Fares are $2.75 for riders 64 and younger; $1 for 65+. Bus trips are less than 30 minutes each way.
It’s empowering to feel comfortable using public transportation, so we hope you’ll come along and see what it feels like to get around without a car. Sign up at our front desk.
Upcoming Field Trips:
Thursday, June 1, 10:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
Destination: Seattle Art Museum. (Free admission)
Friday, June 16, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
Destination: Pike Place Market. We’ll also visit the Pike Place Senior Center
