By 2030, Seattle plans to have 90% of all personal trips have zero greenhouse gas emissions, opening up substantial funding for bikes and allowing for the completion of critical infrastructure. The city’s ambitious Bicycle Master Plan lays out a vision for a connected network that includes 100 miles of protected bike lanes and nearly 250 miles of neighborhood greenways. When complete, every household will be within a quarter-mile of an all ages and all abilities bike facility.

In order to ensure all kids learn to ride, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) funds Cascade Bicycle Club’s Let’s Go school education programming. The department also prioritized building key bicycle connections to transit, emphasizing first- and last-mile connections. Plus, bike champions are ubiquitous in the city, helping elevate safety concerns, advocate for connections from certain underserved neighborhoods or allocate funds for historically marginalized communities. The progress shows: From 2020 to 2021, Seattle’s Bicycle Network Analysis score jumped from 53 to 58.
