Recovery and Return to Office

We have all been through a lot over the last few years. The pandemic changed the way that we live and work in the city and region. For many Seattleites, it meant that daily commutes to downtown disappeared, virtual meetings replaced coffee and lunch outings, and online events substituted receptions, conferences, and gatherings.  

For others, in-person work continued. We want to thank our front-line workers, construction teams, mechanics and contractors who helped us make progress during the pandemic. Whether driving a bus, loading a ferry, or filling a pothole, many people on our teams kept working to keep you moving.   

We have been working to keep you safe whether you are walking, biking, rolling, scooting, driving, or taking transit. We have implemented safety improvements on our streets such as lowering the speed limits to increase safety and reduce crashes. And, our transit agencies have placed stringent cleaning protocols on all of our buses, trains and ferries.   

The good news is that we have travel options for you to get you where you need to go: busesferries, water taxis and Link light rail are all options for getting to and through Downtown Seattle.
