Bellevue needs more bike lanes so that kids and adults can stay active and improve their health, when biking to and from school and work. Many kids and adults have weight problems due to inactivity. By increasing the numbers bike lanes it will not only make it safer to bike; also the cost to treat common diseases resulting from inactivity and obesity will decrease such as diabetes and coronary diseases. Other benefits ...more »
The city's transportation system functions to move people and goods, not just cars. Auto dependency has been reduced by convient and workable alternatives, including connections to transit and future light rail service, enhanced use of carpools and an integrated pedestrian and bicycle system.
What is your BEST IDEA for helping to achieve increased mobility for Bellevue's future?
A system of circulator Buses connecting Greater Downtown Neighborhoods like Vue Crest, Surrey Downs, Bellecrest, Northtowne, and Enatai is necessary to implement use of the downtown as their commercial space, while keeping local car trips off downtown streets. Link the Library, Post Office, Bel Sq, Olde Bellevue, Downtown Park, City Hall, East Link Stations, Meydenbauer Center, and the Hospital District with short ...more »

At all bus stops install a simple sheltered area with a bench. Provide a place to sit, so bus users have a shelter from rain, sun, wind, and a place to sit while waiting for the bus.
There are no stops along the Bellevue way-100th Ave stretch of NE 8th. The area in front of QFC/Bartell's should be a stop for both Metro AND Sound Transit. Its 520 only right now. Closest is NE 4th and Bellevue Way...pretty limiting for such a densely populated area of downtown. I mean its a full half mile walk. I'm not trying to be lazy but its not very convenient, especially if you're carrying groceries or something. ...more »
No EB and WB left turn at Bellevue Way and NE 8th. Make three thru lanes going EB and three thru lanes going WB on NE 8th. Add an "all walk" signal for pedestrians.
Similar to the people mover used in the airport.
The people mover will connect the proposed light rail station and transit center from Bellevue Way to 112th Ave. This will encourage ped traffic. People who work or shop can easliy carry the merchandizes for public transprtation.
"All Walk" where all pedestrians can cross in all directions at the same time while traffic is stopped in all directions without being able to turn on red as well. Due to so much pedestrian traffic at this intersection frequently cars turning right never get the opportunity to do so during their green light and end up holding up lots of traffic behind them as well.
Benches, benches, benches and lots of comfortable places to sit all over the city enabling residents, such as the elderly or parents with children, to walk longer distances from point to point. Wide sidewalks and fun statues along the way will make connecting pathways more appealing.
The Elements Buildings house many services (bakeries, restaurants, fitness centers) but there is NO public bike parking. I have to chain my bike to a handrail. The management refuses to build it. We need street-side bike parking.
Many intersections on Bellevue Way (specifically 2nd & Bellevue Way, Main St & Bellevue Way, 4th & BW, and 8th & BW) are extremely dangerous for pedestrians because of cars making "free rights on reds" WITHOUT LOOKING to the right to see pedestrians crossing on their green light. I have been almost killed several times. Cars do not understand that PEDS have priority in this situation.
The corner of 105th & 4th is a very long block (105th terminates here, and does not run north), and jaywalking is common between Chipotle and the old Safeway. Before someone runs over a ped, we need a crosswalk here, with flags & lights.
