    Properties & Buildings: Transportation Considerations for Phased Re-Opening 

    Seattle 2030 District partnered with Commute Seattle for a session on July 30th to provide perspectives on transportation and commute trends.

    Building owners and property managers are working hard to prepare their buildings for future phases of re-opening. While there are many details to consider within a building, it is just as important to understand how tenants will be arriving, and how you can meet their needs in a safe, economical way.

    Commute Seattle reviewed how COVID-19 has changed the transportation landscape, ways tenant commutes might change, and specific details you should consider in different arrival areas of your building. Watch the video recording or download the presentation.
