Transit Ridership Continues to Grow in Central Seattle, While Solo Car Commutes Decline

As public transit stagnates in most U.S. cities, central Seattle continued its rapid growth by adding roughly 10,000 morning transit commuters last year, new local data show.

Key findings

Bicycle commuting remains rather seasonal but during the summer months can account for 13.1% of commuters.

Growth of ridership has brought problems as well, buses coming from the north often have overflow problems as they pass through denser housing areas in the last few miles.

Solo commuters rates dropped from 35.2% to 25.4% from 2010 to today.
