Who has opted out of their parking permits in NW?

Name: Cindy
Lives: in Cedar Hills
Works: NW
Favorite part of the Transportation Wallet: BIKETOWN
Favorite part about not driving to work:  reading and no gridlock traffic

Cindy takes the MAX from Cedar Hills to Providence Park MAX station. She hops on BIKETOWN, which serves as her last mile solution and is much faster than walking or taking the Streetcar.

Cindy didn’t think she would use BIKETOWN, let alone love it. 


Name: Robert 
Lives: in NW
Works: Old town/Chinatown
Favorite part of the Transportation Wallet: BIKETOWN!
His favorite part about the Transportation Wallet is that he gets more winter biking in using
BIKETOWN and the flexibility of having all the options.
Favorite part about not having a car: Not having the expense of a car nor look for parking. 

Robert’s biggest motivation for giving up the car and the Zone M parking permit was to save money.
