SDOT Pedestrian Wayfinding Focus Groups

Focus Group Opportunity

The Seattle Department of Transportation is looking for 8 to 10 people to participate in a discussion about finding your way around the city on foot. This discussion is part of a year-long project to design better walking directions and information to encourage Seattleites and visitors to walk more and further. These meetings will provide the City with critical early input from those who have first-hand knowledge of wayfinding challenges in Seattle.

The discussion will take place over 2 hours on October 10th at the Central Library (1000 4th Ave, Seattle 98104). There will be an afternoon (2pm-4pm) and an evening (5:30-7:30) session. Volunteers must be available on this date to be considered. Refreshments will be provided. Participants will be acknowledged for their time with a $60 Safeway gift card.
