Next Big Tech Corridor? Between Seattle and Vancouver, Planners Hope

There’s plans in the works to create a tech corridor between Seattle and Vancouver. A report from the New York Times found ideas being thrown around for a dedicated lane for self-driving vehicles.

“A group of Seattle techies proposed … a dedicated lane for autonomous vehicles on Interstate 5, the highway connecting Seattle to the Canadian border. The plan — which relies on autonomous vehicles that still need a lot of work — would not shave much time off the commute between the cities, but could make the ride less tedious by letting travelers work or watch a movie, said Tom Alberg, a managing director at Madrona Venture Group, a Seattle venture capital firm, and an author of the proposal.”

Other ideas may include a high speed rail line. It was stated in the report that the housing costs in Vancouver are higher than San Francisco while the average tech Salary in Vancouver at $49,000 is about half the salary paid in San Francisco.
