Over the next five years, Seattle’s downtown will be in a state of transition to meet the need of our growing city. We’re calling this the Seattle Squeeze.
We are making changes to our city and to our regional transportation system to meet the needs of our growing region and help people get where they need to go safely and efficiently. New mobility projects are being developed and constructed to connect communities to downtown with fast, regular service and to create the public spaces our growing region needs.
Our transportation agencies continue to work together to manage congestion and limit the impact on commuters and businesses. To manage our way through this, everyone will need to continue to do their part to change how they are getting to and through downtown Seattle.
