Workers in SODO are helping us close transit gaps and find innovative ways to improve commutes.
What’s happening now…
In July, we heard from more than 900 commuters about transit gaps in SODO. Our stakeholder working group is reviewing the needs people told us about, and we’ll work with them to identify new transit concepts to develop for community review.
Metro has been working with the City of Seattle and the SODO Business Improvement Area to make it easier for more people to get where they need to go in the SODO (south of downtown) district.
The SODO District is a key employment center in Seattle, but many of its workers have schedules that are not served by current bus service. Also, the pedestrian environment in SODO doesn’t make it easy to use transit. The result is that many SODO commuters drive alone.
Metro wants to add new transit options that reduce congestion and make it easier for people to get to work in SODO.

About Community Connections
Metro’s Community Connections program brings service to parts of King County that don't have the infrastructure, density, or land use patterns to support a dense network of traditional fixed-route bus service. In such areas, alternative services may be a better match for community transportation needs. They may also be more cost-effective.
This four-year demonstration program is an opportunity to experiment with innovative transportation solutions.
