Unmute the Commute: One Bus Away from Love

A Metro bus can be a lot of things – a way to get to work, a social hub and even a place to find love. On today’s Unmute the Commute, we hear from one rider who is trying to bring passengers together… with mixed success.

Unmute the Commute: Super Commuters

A growing number of people in Western Washington are commuting for more than an hour and a half to work. We follow one of these journeys on today’s Unmute the Commute.

Unmute the Commute: The Water Taxi

Since the Alaskan Way Viaduct closed, riders on the West Seattle Water Taxi have more than doubled. King County Metro is hoping that some of those new riders will keep using the water taxi even after the tunnel replacing the viaduct opens. On this week’s Unmute the Commute, we take a trip to Elliott Bay and hear from people commuting by boat.  Produced by Jennie Cecil Moore.

Unmute the Commute: This is Home

Often in this series, we feature stories about people in dense urban areas taking buses to work or community events. Outside of Seattle and its suburbs, many people rely on public transit as well. But bus service hasn’t always been reliable in rural areas. Today we take a bus ride in Snoqualmie Valley and look at transit service in rural areas of King County.

Unmute the Commute: A Home for Buttercup

Washington has a handful of prisons scattered across the state – so if you’re convicted of a crime in Spokane, you may end up incarcerated in Clallam Bay or Shelton. This can mean a long trip for family members or spouses. Produced by Max Wasserman.

Featuring: Linda Paz (Matthew House)

Unmute the Commute: Bikes, Bread, and Traffic

The period of maximum constraint – that’s the term city planners are using for the next few years in Seattle, when a series of major construction projects will take place to improve transportation in the city’s core. But before these improvements are finished, there is a lot of construction and some nearby business owners are struggling with closed streets and disconnected infrastructure.
