Downtown On the Go’s Live Downtown program helps Downtown Tacoma employees live near their workplace. Live Downtown has a package of incentives for those interested in owning or renting, as long as it’s in downtown Tacoma.
As an employer there’s no cost to participate. And you’ll save on parking costs, increase employee recruitment and retention through employee commitment to downtown and your business, and enjoy the benefits of happy, healthy employees!
Live Downtown is an opportunity to boost your employee benefits package, improve the neighborhood around your business, lessen the ecological impacts of employee commutes, and save your employees tons of money on housing and transportation.
