University District

The University District Network is named for the University of Washington; however, this network is also home to employers in the health care and government industries that collectively bring over 30,000 daily commuters to CTR-affected employers.

University employers are working to achieve a drive-alone rate of 36% by 2017.

Data Sources: Network performance data is summarized from Washington State Department of Transportation CTR Survey data from 2015/2016. Network benefits data is summarized from 2014 CTR program reports.


Commute Choices
The most popular transportation benefits offered by University District employers offering a Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH) program, providing employees with an annual transit pass (ORCA Passport), offering pre-tax and on-site amenities like shower and locker facilities.

In 2013/2014, the top three University District commute choices to driving alone were riding transit, ridesharing, and biking. Due to the number of employers in the University District that still have to survey, 2015/2016 mode split information will be updated in June 2016.
