Wife got an offer as a contractor there. Will she be able to use the Connector or the smaller shuttles?

    Not sure about what actually happens but website says connector is for FTE only I believe. Shuttles they don't check. I was pretty sure I was sitting behind a homeless guy on the shuttle once. Unless of course that's just how software developers dress nowadays.

      We look like we are homeless bc we aren’t paid that much. It’s either pay the rent or buy clothes.

      Connector is for commute to-from home. That’s FTE only. Shuttles is between MS buildings including Seattle, Bellevue downtown, Sammamish. Anyone can ride shuttles including visitors.

    Contractor at msft it's very much second class citizen. More so than most places I've worked.

    No for the connector and generally no for the shuttles. There's only a few special shuttles vendors can take. The bike shuttle to Seattle and to the Westlake office are a few exceptions. However vendors can freely ride & request all on-campus shuttles and can still get the orca card to use all public transit for free
