Seattle's Walking Maps
These maps help you choose a walking route that best suits your interests and fitness level.  The approximate time in minutes it takes to walk each segment and steep grades are provided. View online or order a hard copy.

Check out these neighborhood walking maps recommended in the Pedestrian Master Plan (see right column) and created by Feet First.

How walkable is your neighborhood? rates the walkability of an address by locating nearby stores, restaurants, schools, parks, etc.

Car sharing

Car sharing helps reduce the need to own a car and it reduces driving. Car sharing allows you to have the convenience of a car when you need one without the hassles. You rent a car by the hour and just pay for the time you use. This means lower cost for you and fewer car trips in our City.


When you own fewer cars or leave your car at home, a taxi can fill in those occasional gaps.

  • Yellow 206/622-6500
