Residents and others interested in reducing rush-hour congestion in Bellevue are invited to comment on two plans designed to lower the number of solo drivers on the road.
Neither plan would compel residents or workers to give up their vehicles. Instead, the plans recommend strategies and programs that would give commuters and residents more travel options, including walking, biking, taking the bus, carpooling or vanpooling.
The Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) plan, which the City of Bellevue is updating, is aimed at employers throughout Bellevue with 100 or more full-time employees. The Growth and Transportation Efficiency Center (GTEC) plan addresses downtown residents, workers and businesses, especially those with fewer than 100 employees.
To view the draft plans, visit the Commute Trip Reduction page. The state Department of Transportation offers more information about the CTR program.
The City Council will consider adoption of the two draft plans at its Feb. 25 meeting; members of the public are encouraged to comment on them through Feb. 22. Comments may be made by e-mail to GTECcomment@bellevuewa.gov and CTRcomment@bellevuewa.gov, or by telephone at 425-452-7896.
