What goes better with fall than football? More places to park (and pick up) ReachNow cars in central neighborhoods across Seattle.
Today, we added dozens of designated parking spaces across the city – from Pacific Science Center to SODO Stadiums – that will help ease some of your parking pain thanks to a slate of new parking partnerships.
A recent study* found that Seattleites spend 58 hours per year looking for parking, which is three times more than the average American. ReachNow’s move to secure additional parking options for members is part of a larger commitment to make ReachNow the easiest option for commuting, nights out and running errands.
“We are constantly looking for ways to solve transportation challenges in the communities that we serve and it’s no secret to anyone living in Seattle that parking is becoming increasingly difficult,” said Holly Houser, Seattle market manager at ReachNow. “Our hope is that with these added parking options, ReachNow immediately becomes an even more convenient way to get into and around the city.”
“As part of the urban core of Seattle, Pacific Science Center has seen firsthand a dramatic increase in demand for parking, which has affected both our guests and our resident neighbors. Shared mobility services like ReachNow are an essential part of expanding Seattle's transportation options and serve as a fascinating real-life example of technology improving lives,” said Chris Wheaton, Chief Operating & Financial Officer of Pacific Science Center. “We are excited to welcome ReachNow cars at the Claypool Memorial Garage.”
ReachNow members can now start or end a trip at the following public parking locations:
Pacific Science Center’s Claypool Memorial Garage (200 Denny Way – Seattle Center): The entire top floor of Pacific Science Center’s garage is open to ReachNow members to park. Members may park and end trips in any available space for free – no need to pay at the station. Enter the garage from 2nd Ave. N, just off Denny Way and drive up to the top floor (named the “Butterfly level”) (map).
Cascade Terrace Apartments (570 Galer Street – Queen Anne): Three (3) parking spaces for ReachNow cars now available for all members to use, including building residents, in the heart of Queen Anne. Park or pick-up a car from any of the available parking spaces (map).
500 Mercer St. Garage at ATLAS Workbase (500 Mercer Street – Lower Queen Anne): Three (3) dedicated parking spaces are available in the parking garage at 500 Mercer Street below the QFC, thanks to ReachNow partner, ATLAS Workbase. ReachNow members can start or end trips in the designated spaces (map).
Stadium Parking for Sunday Game Days (3rd Ave S & Massachusetts – SoDo): Thanks to our partnership with the City of Seattle, ReachNow cars have seven (7) designated parking spaces just south of the stadiums on Sundays for both soccer and football game days. Drop a car on you way into the game or pick one up when you’re ready to head home (map).
ReachNow members are also welcome to park at Seattle Park & Rides within the Seattle Home Area, including Northgate, Greenlake, Airport-Spokane and SW Spokane St. Parking at Park & Ride locations is exclusively for members connecting to transit, vanpools or carpools. This is a great option for commuters who need a first or last mile solution.
We’re just getting started – so stay tuned for more updates. And, in the meantime, happy driving!
