Equity Performance Measures
City investments toward Top Tier Projects in High Priority Areas
This measure would track the assessment (and completion if needed) of the project list identified in the Pedestrian Master Plan. The system completion measure and resulting project lists were developed using the methodology outlined in the Pedestrian Master Plan. The performance target would be a percentage increase in system completion each year.
Increase public engagement about pedestrian issues
This measure would use the number of “hits” on the city’s pedestrian program website as a proxy for public engagement in pedestrian issues. The number of hits on the website in 2007 would be used as the baseline and the performance target would be an increasing number of hits on the website.
Increase transit ridership
This measure would track transit ridership by stop or route. The number of people riding transit would reflect pedestrian activity as many people walk to and from the transit stop. King County’s counts of the number of transit boardings and alightings would be used for the measure. The performance target would be a percentage increase in the number of transit trips.
Mode share (more people walking)
This measure would compare the percentage of all trips that are made on foot. The 2006 Puget Sound Regional Council Household Travel Survey would be used to track mode share. The performance target would be an increasing percentage of trips made on foot.
