Walk

Getting there under one’s own power just feels good. The fresh air, the energy! Not to mention what it avoids: traffic and parking headaches. Combine pedestrian travel with other transportation options and you can get anywhere. Bellevue has been designated a Silver Walk Friendly Community by Walk Friendly Communities.

Accessibility

If you have disability or limited mobility, getting around Bellevue as a pedestrian might be easier than you think. Bellevue has an extensive network of sidewalks with curb cuts at intersections; and 78% of intersections have auditory pedestrian signals. "Street view" in Google Maps can be a great tool to verify whether there are sidewalks on your route.
