Transit benefits legislation survey ORCA for All envisions a near future when every resident and every worker in Seattle and King County has an unlimited transit pass in hand, making it easy to choose public transit, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions and traffic congestion. Many employers already subsidize transit passes, fully or partially, for their employees. But this practice is far from universal, and lower-wage workers — who are more likely to be people of color & women, lack access to wealth, and struggle with housing costs — are much less likely to get this benefit.We at the Transit Riders Union are excited to be working on legislation to change this. We want your input, so we can help craft a law that gets transit passes into the hands of as many Seattle workers as possible, while also being easy for employers to understand and administer. Unless you have a lot of detailed thoughts to share, this survey should take less than five minutes. Questions?
