About Downtown: On The Go!

Downtown On the Go
Dane Meyer

Downtown: On the Go! is an active partnership between 23 downtown businesses and the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber, the City of Tacoma, and Pierce Transit. Leveraging their resources and relationships, these organizations work together with employers, commuters, and anyone whose daily life is downtown to promote and advocate for transportation choices and integrated land use systems in Tacoma's downtown.


Downtown: On the Go! envisions a vibrant, integrated downtown Tacoma - where daily life is enhanced by connecting people, green spaces, arts & culture, and jobs. Interdependent land use policies and transportation options reinforce an active, compact urban core that is connected locally and regionally, promoting a focus on the movement and interactions of people rather than cars.


Downtown: On the Go!'s purpose is to be the transportation advocate for anyone whose daily life is downtown. We do this by:

  • Educating about transportation choices other than driving alone.
  • Encouraging use of transit, ridesharing, biking, walking, and flexible work arrangements.
  • Advocating for transportation choices and land use policies that promote a vibrant and integrated downtown.


Downtown: On the Go! offers services, resources, and programs specific to Downtown commuters, businesses, and residents. From informational presentations for your staff or group, individualized employee/employer consultations, forums, events, and more, Downtown On The Go! supports you in trying or continuing your non-SOV commute!
