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

If you can drive or afford a car, you may not understand what it’s like to rely on walking, rolling, transit and asking 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. 

Check out highlights from our 2021 event and proclamation from Governor Inslee launching the 2022 #WeekWithoutDriving.

“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.”

– King County Councilmember Girmay Zahilay
