This week, Real Simple magazine named Seattle the nation’s #1 time-saving city, thanks to our extensive public transit, plethora of Wi-Fi spots and coffee shops, proximity to one of the country’s most on-time airports, 50 miles of new bike lanes in the last two years, even our “impressively short waits for a doctor’s appointment.”
“Our 13 Neighborhood Service Centers are huge time-savers,” OED’s Karin Zaugg Black explains in the article. “At many of them, you can apply for a passport, pay utility bills or parking tickets, or have a hearing with the magistrate.”
The article also highlights Seattle’s state-of-the-art signal-optimization program, which synchronizes traffic lights to facilitate smoother travel through the city.
Portland, Oregon, and San Francisco, California, ranked second- and third-best time saving cities.
