I would say when it comes to your parking, no matter if it’s paid for or not. It’s all about equity.

Lightning Round

If you have a magic wand, what is your one wish for the future of commuting at your organization?

Camila – Okay. So, if I had a magic wand, my one wish would be that we are some way, somehow carless.

Tod - You know, my biggest complaint is always the difficulty of getting people from the east to the west and back from the west to the east in Seattle on transit. With our hourglass-shaped city, a lot of our commuters have to go from a northern home down into downtown, transfer a bus, and then go back up to get to our location. And that turns a lot of people off of transit. I can get here -- it’s 25 miles from my house, I can get there in about an hour. But a person that is only five miles away can take 45 to 50 minutes because of that.

Melvin - I think just SOV, man, let that thing just dissipate. If we got rid of the SOV I think that would be the godsend for everyone.
