This was perfect for what I’m working on today.

If you live in Seattle you know this is a car town.  It’s nearly impossible to get to some points without the use of car.  It’s sort of sad really that a young city that appears to be full of environmentally conscious  people haven’t done more to make this city have better mass transit options.

I found this nice list of non-car ways to get around town.  Since it was buried in a random word document I thought I would share it here.  I’d give credit to the original author, hair but I don’t know who they are.
