About Ryan Packer

Ryan Packer is covering transportation in Seattle from the hyperlocal to the statewide level from the perspective of a public transit user, pedestrian, and bike rider.

At The Urbanist, where they have been writing since 2015, and the Seattle Bike Blog, where they took over as Temporary Editor for four months in the Winter of 2021, they have been breaking transportation stories on subjects ranging from bike infrastructure  and pedestrian safety to highway expansion. Recently they have begun covering the planned expansion of I-5 between Washington and Oregon for BikePortland.

Via their Twitter account, you'll see reporting from venues that often escape the radar of larger outlets, including the Seattle Freight Advisory Board, the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, and the Washington Transportation Commission. Your support will continue to make this work possible.
