I just accepted a new position in Tacoma where I'll mostly be working between 7am-4pm and I'm curious what the commute would be like coming from the south end of Seattle. I know traffic going in and out of Seattle gets bad, however I don't really know exactly when it gets so horrible.

I'm curious about specific times, within the hour, when traffic starts up and begins to die down in the mornings, afternoons, and evenings for both South bound traffic and North bound traffic along I-5.

Thanks for the help.

The Rainier Beach area. I'm guessing it's about a half hour drive in normal traffic.

The commute south shouldn't be so bad , leaving Rainier Beach at 6:10 AM or so, but 4 PM heading north could be a nightmare. Could it work to drive to the Tukwila Sounder Train station and take the Sounder?

Default Seattle to Tacoma

The commute should not be bad since you will be doing the reverse commute. Will you be on Rainier. If you do coming down Rainier to join 167 to 18 to I 5 should be relatively painless. I did that ride many time being in field sales.
