Bicycle Program

Seattle’s Bike Program—Come ride with us

Seattle is using our streets to provide safe, affordable travel choices and create great places that encourage people to get out and enjoy streets on foot or by bike. In doing so, we reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve the health of or residents and make it comfortable for people of all abilities from our 5-year old kids to our 80-year old grandparents to move around.

 

The Bicycle Master Plan is one tool helping us to reach this vision. Over the last four years, SDOT has invested nearly $36 million in bicycle improvements guided by the plan. The improvements were funded through the voter-approved Bridging the Gap transportation levy and include 129 miles of bike lanes and sharrows, 98 miles of signed routes and 2,230 bike parking spaces. This year the Bicycle Master Plan is being updated. As the City works toward its goal of tripling the number of cyclists, we will consider how to expand our implementation of bicycle facilities that focus on short, neighborhood trips and improvements that appeal to a wide variety of bicycle riders. Please get involved!

Be a rOll model.

Safety is SDOT’s most important priority. Our long-term goal is a city with zero traffic fatalities and serious injuries. Our bike program also educates cyclists and motorists on the rules of the road, how to use new bike improvements being added to our streets and distributes bicycling guide maps.
