Seattle's "Park It. Cab It. Transit." Campaign

Plan for Late Night Transportation Alternatives
View Document

Provision of safe and accessible late-night transportation options is a top priority of the Seattle Nightlife Initiative, launched in July 2010. Minimal after-midnight bus service and perceived difficulty in catching a taxi led many nightlife patrons to drive personal automobiles to/from nightlife districts. Closing time challenges due to limited transport alternatives included DUI, loitering, noise, disorderly conduct and competition with residents for parking. These impacts propelled the city of Seattle to propose a multi-pronged plan to provide safer and more efficient late-night transit options. The three delivery channels include: 1) Enhanced Late-Night Bus Service, 2) Establishment of Late-Night Taxi Zones and 3) Introduction of Pre-Paid Overnight Parking.
