Non-Motorized Connectivity Study

This project presents new methods to help planners analyze bicycle and walking access to transit services. King County Metro and Sound Transit have partnered to develop an innovative analysis approach and set of tools to evaluate the benefits of non-motorized access improvements to transit. See below for a project overview and links to download the report.


Transit plays a key role in providing local and regional mobility, but in many areas, transit access is limited by a lack of non-motorized connections to bus and train stops. Many cities have walk and bike plans that outline blueprints for non-motorized travel; however, the goals of these non-motorized plans tend to be broad-based and access to transit may not be a high priority. Other cities lack non-motorized plans all together, so barriers to transit access may not be known.

Study Area

The project study area consists of approximately 400 square miles of KC and ST coverage area.
