December 2016 BLS Update

Partners –

No need to update your SFT password
Secure File Transport (SFT) is being phased out for partners now that reports are created within ATLAS and stored by the user. Ignore notices to update your expired password for SFT at The service remains available, however. Let us know if you have questions or want to keep the service.
No need to update SFT passwords if you no longer use this service

Notify BLS of changes to fees or rules
Last reminder of 2016: Let us know if your program or city plans to change fees, rules, or requirements. In many cases, we need about two months to change programming and ensure renewal notices reflect new fees or rules, if applicable. Advance notice to BLS Partnership Services is appreciated even if your proposed changes are not finalized by your leadership.

Discontinue ATLAS access for former employees
Only staff members who use ATLAS for regulatory work should have access to the system. If teammates have moved out of your work area, notify BLS Partnership Services so we can remove access.

Helping for-hire drivers at city hall
For Hire companies and drivers must be approved at city hall to operate locally. These applicants must get approvals based on the physical address of their office, regardless of where they operate.

Also, remember that King County (not city hall) approves all companies and drivers who operate in unincorporated King County, Auburn, Bellevue, Burien, Covington, Enumclaw, Federal Way, Issaquah, Kenmore, Kent, Kirkland, Maple Valley, Redmond, Renton, Sammamish, SeaTac, Seattle, and Shoreline.

Season’s Greetings
As we approach the winter holidays, we want to thank you for your partnership. We extend good tidings from our team to yours as we look ahead to time with friends and family before the coming new year. May the blessings of the season be with you and yours. 

Good tidings to you wherever you are!
