Join Disability Mobility Initiative for our 2nd Annual Week Without Driving

If you can drive, and can afford a car, you may not understand what it’s like to rely on walking, rolling, transit and asking or paying for rides. But for nearly a quarter of the people in our state – people with disabilities, young people, seniors and people who can’t afford cars or gas, this is our every day.

We invite you to join us so you can start to understand the barriers nondrivers experience in accessing your (and our) communities. To get ready, read our stories collected in the Transportation Access for Everyone Storymap and check out highlights from our 2021 event.

Co-hosts include:  All Aboard Washington, Bothellites for People Oriented Places, Cascade Bicycle Club, Climate Solutions, Complete Streets Bellevue, Commute Seattle, CTAN NW, Downtown on the Go, Forevergreen Trails, Feet First, Front and Centered, Futurewise, Hopelink, Kirkland Greenways, Leafline Trails Coalition, MLK Labor, Move Redmond, Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, Seattle Subway, Share the Cities, Sierra Club, Snohomish County Transportation Coalition, Snoqualmie Valley Transit, Thurston County Planning Commission, Transit Riders Union, Transportation Choices Coalition, The Urbanist, WA Sr. Lobby.

“It’s really important that all of us, especially elected officials, experience the consequences of our policy decisions. What is it like to get from point A to point B, using the public transit that we have currently funded? What is it like for people who are low income? What is it like for people with disabilities? What is it like for people who are from other marginalized groups? We need to understand that and we need to make better policy decisions based on that firsthand experience.”
