Bellevue: The Eastside Hub of Puget Sound

With beautiful parks, top schools and a vibrant economy, Bellevue is routinely ranked among the best mid-sized cities in the country.  Just across Lake Washington from Seattle, it is the high-tech and retail center of the Eastside, with a downtown skyline of gleaming high-rises.

Bellevue’s Downtown Transportation Plan aspires to make walking the easiest way to get around Downtown Bellevue, and this tour will show how small investments can make a big difference for pedestrians, access to transit, and public spaces.

After a scenic bus trip over a floating bridge, we’ll see intersections that are now considered exceptional examples of pedestrian design, and walk along a pedestrian corridor once known as a “cattle chute” and now considered a civic treasure.
