Seattle Times letters to the editor

September 27, 2013 at 6:28 AM

Less than half of Seattle commuters drive alone to work

City needs mass-transit system

The recent article on cars apparently deals with only Seattle proper, ignoring the huge amount of daily auto traffic to and from the surrounding cities. [“Cars losing grip on Seattle,” page one, Sept. 25.]

The terrible traffic conditions in Seattle are not caused by people who live and work here.

Of note, also, were the four cities in the U.S. with a higher percentage than Seattle of people who do not drive solo to work. Each of these cities has a subway system that facilitates transportation within their boundaries and from their suburban communities.

One doesn’t see many bicycle riders in New York or Boston.
