Active transportation

Active transportation: Active transportation describes human scaled and often person-powered ways of getting around, such as walking, bicycling or rolling a wheelchair. The Active Transportation Plan provides a foundation for policies, procedures, investments, and improvements to the Washington state active transportation system.

Bicycling in Washington: Bicycling plays a key role in Washington's transportation system. Washington state has been named the nation's number one "Bicycle Friendly State" by the League of American Bicyclists more times than any other state in the nation. For more information refer to Bicycling in Washington.

Walking in Washington: All Washingtonians are pedestrians at one time or another - to get to work, for recreation, as part of events and tours, and our children may walk to school. In fact, most trips that people make every day are short enough to be accomplished by foot or using a mobility assistance device such as a wheelchair. For more information, refer to, Walking in Washington.

The State Active Transportation Plan released in 2021 provides more information on data sources and limitations. The information in the plan doesn't match this dashboard exactly due to the use of different data sources available when the plan was developed.
