Unfortunately, it works both ways.  Many of those of us who work in
downtown Seattle rely on buses, rather than driving.  So to get out
to a meeting on the Eastside, we have to first take a bus home, 
then drive out to the Eastside... two hops, versus the single-hop
drive-straight-from-work that I'm guessing (but have absolutely no
numbers for =) is predominant among those who work on the Eastside.
Taking this into account, it takes just as long to go to the Eastside.

Yes, in a perfect world, a few people who park downtown would carpool
the downtowners directly to the Eastside, making it a single hop.
But you try coordinating that. (seriously! write a carpool scheduling
CGI app, prove me wrong, and win the adoration of your fellow downtown

Alternatively: What are the costs and risks of having two subgroups?
Are we big enough yet to support a split?  Ooo, I can just see it now...
SPUG vs. EPUG deathmatch!   *Johnny Bravo-style karate chop*
