Making Seattle’s Streets Safer for Everyone

Did you know that more than 900,000 vehicles travel Seattle’s streets every day? These bus, freight, and car drivers share the road with the many thousands of people who walk and bike our streets every day. While Seattle operates one of the safest transportation networks in the world, our busy streets present opportunities for conflict.

Seattle strives to minimize those conflicts and be the most pedestrian-friendly city in the nation. Our Pedestrian Master Plan guides our approach to making it easier for people of all ages and abilities to walk, and our Vision Zero program identifies specific engineering, enforcement, and education tools to use in our effort to end traffic deaths and serious injuries on our streets by 2030.
