This webinar featured speakers from Sound Transit, King County Metro, the Seattle Department of Transportation, and our very own Commute Seattle Transportation Specialists! We provided information about what's changed and what to expect when riding the bus, light rail, and more.

We know you have questions. For example, how will transit routes and schedules change? How is transit safe? What is rider capacity currently like? What can I expect during my commute? Although we are not out of the woods, Commute Seattle is here to support businesses and employees as they begin thinking about returning to work. On Wednesday, April 28th, Commute Seattle facilitated a webinar with guest speakers from Sound Transit, Metro, and SDOT. Attendees learned exciting new information about:
