Pedestrian and Bicycle Planning

City Council and staff work to make Bellevue a great place to walk and bike. ChooseYourWayBellevue is a one-stop resource for all image of pedestrians walking in Old Bellevuealternatives  to solo driving in Bellevue, including walking and biking.

Recognition of the city's efforts include a 2014 Silver Walk Friendly Community award from the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center, and a  2015 Bronze Bicycle Friendly Community award from the League of American Bicyclists.

    How to Activate a Signal When on a Bike

    You don't have to push a pedestrian button to get a traffic signal to change for you on your bike. Stop on the image of a bicycle painted onto the pavement to change the signal. A loop detector in the pavement will activate the traffic signal.

    In some locations, there is an "X" mark on the pavement instead of a bicycle image. If you encounter a signal that does not change for you, make a transportation maintenance request via email at or call the Signal Shop at 425-452-6950.
