Walk Bike Ride is a Seattle initiative to:
- Create an equitable transportation system for all by providing more affordable travel choices
- Focus on the places where people want to be and add qualities that make them want to stay
- Prioritize right-of-way space to emphasize walking, biking and riding
The initiative emphasizes the transportation choices we make each day and encourages us to walk, bike, take public transit more often to: 1) save money; 2) improve our health; 3) improve the health of our communities.
The city wants your input and has scheduled a series of meetings:
June 7th, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm â€“ RSVP
Van Asselt Community Center
2820 S Myrtle St., Seattle, WA 98108
June 14th, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm â€“ RSVP
Delridge Community Center
4501 Delridge Way SW, Seattle, WA 98106
June 21st, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm â€“ RSVP
Northgate Community Center
10510 5th Ave. NE, Seattle, WA 98125
These community meetings seek to answer the question, â€œwhat needs to change in your neighborhood to make walking, biking, and riding transit easy?â€
Is it a closer bus stop? More sidewalks? More in-city rail transportation? More bike lanes? More pedestrian spaces?
Attendees will learn more about Walk Bike Ride, get more information on what types of projects are possible, and fill out a â€œballotâ€ that will help us think about how we prioritize these types of transportation projects.
