Starting on January 11, the longest major highway closure Seattle has ever seen will begin (**insert scary music**).
It's no secret that traffic is horrendous already, and with the viaduct closing, people are preparing for the traffic nightmare this closure is bound to bring.
But ReachNow, a car-sharing and ride-hailing service from BMW, is making lemonade out of lemons. They're covering transit fare for Seattleites who use ReachNow services to get to or from five key transit hubs between January 7 and February 15. Yep, you read that right. You'll receive a $3 credit every time you drive yourself or get a ride that starts or ends at one of the following transit hubs:
- Northgate Transit Center Park & Ride
- University of Washington Station
- Mt. Baker Station
- Columbia City Station
- Othello Station
This offer is part of the Seattle Department of Transportation, Sound Transit, and King County Metro's "Rideshare to Transit" program, a collaboration between public and private agencies to provide first/last mile options for commuters during the Viaduct closure.
Featuring professional drivers, no surge pricing, features like 'quiet time' ReachNow Ride is a little different than the other guys.
So, whatever you're calling the next three weeks, "Maxcon—Period of Maximum Constraint," "Carmageddon," or "Seattle Squeeze," ReachNow is ready to help. Sit back and let their professional drivers handle the driving.
To get started, download the free ReachNow app for iOS or Android.
