Ah, the joys of commuting...

By car

  • Current traffic conditions - real-time data on bridges and highways in the Puget Sound area; also has information on express lanes, carpooling, closures, etc.
  • Park & Ride - Like many other metropolitan areas, King County offers a comprehensive Seattle commute/event park-and-ride bus service.
  • For the occasional car user (for example, someone who usually takes a bus), one option (besides the normal car rental) is Flexcar, which has more than 100 vehicles in more than a dozen neighborhoods in Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, West Seattle, and Kitsap County.

By bus

  • Busview is a handy tool for Metro riders that allows one to see a near-real time map of buses in Seattle, with the ability to filter by one or more bus numbers (separate bus numbers with commas in the Enter Routes textbox). Busview requires Java.
  • Bus Monster delivers information from Metro Transit and Busview in a slick Google Maps package.

By bike

  • The Cascade bicycle club has lots of info on commuting, biker education, current events, etc.
  • You can get lots of PDF maps (or instructions on where to pick up a free bike map) from the King County Bicycling guide website.
  • You can download and/or order (free!) a Seattle Bike map from this page on the City of Seattle's website

By train

  • Sounder commuter trains - from Tacoma to Seattle, currently three departures in the a.m. (with stops in Puyallup, Sumner, Auburn, Kent, and Tukwilla), and from Everett to Seattle, currently one departure in the a.m. (with a stop in Edmonds). As for the future? Here's the official (i.e., optimistic) word: "Once in full operation, 18 trains (nine in the morning and nine in the evening) will serve the Lakewood-Tacoma-Seattle segment, and 8 trains (four in the morning and four in the evening) will serve the Everett-Seattle segment. Headways (the time between trains) will be approximately 30 minutes. Some trains will run in the off-peak direction."
