New Commuting Statistics for Downtown Seattle


Commute Seattle is about to release a study on commute modes in Downtown Seattle.

More people ride transit (43%) than drive alone (34%). This is good.

But more people “telework/flex” (4%) than ride bikes to work (3%).  Who wants to bet which workers are more productive?  Yahoo anyone?

Perhaps the take-home on this is that driving to work downtown is no longer doable… 50% of people did it in 2000.

We most definitely do not recommend this approach to driving to work.
