Transportation and Mobility Performance

Community survey results highlight Bellevue's strong mobility and transportation system. Eight in ten residents believe that transportation in Bellevue is safe. The city consistently increases the availability of trails and walkways each year. City staff are evaluating new pavement preservation strategies to improve the condition of arterial roadways. Mass transit use has declined in recent years, partly due to East Link construction impacts, but transit use is expected to grow significantly in the future. The city will continue working to reduce traffic deaths and serious injuries and achieve its Vision Zero goals. 
The below indicators were collected by staff subject matter experts, after an in-depth review of each Strategic Target Area (STA). The review process included an examination of the STA description and the desired outcomes defined therein, the identification of a well rounded set of relevant performance metrics, and an analysis of year-over-year data trends and performance against target. For more information about Bellevue's vision for Transportation and Mobility, click here.
