The City of Everett recently applied for Bicycle Friendly Community status from the League of American Bicyclists. A bike-friendly-city designation will help Everett compete for funding that will be used to improve the City’s bicycle infrastructure.
As part of their review process, the League wants community input on bicycling in Everett. If you’ve ever biked here, please take a minute to complete this survey and share your input. The survey will remain open through Monday, October 11.
The survey is open to anyone familiar with bicycling in Everett. Everyone is encouraged to complete the survey and to share it broadly! Thank you for helping the City of Everett’s application to the Bicycle Friendly Community program.
The master plan was adopted by the Everett City Council as an amendment to the Transportation Comprehensive Plan on April 20, 2011. The plan is used as the basis for future transportation projects and applying for federal and state grant funds. The recommended cross sections are used to improve existing bike lanes during ongoing maintenance projects.

The City of Everett completed an update to the Transportation Element of the City's Comprehensive Plan in 2007. This update resulted in a multi-modal transportation plan that included transit and non-motorized (bikes and pedestrian) modes in addition to roadways.
The transportation element of the City's Comprehensive Plan identified the need to improve links between existing bike transportation facilities as well as to expand the bike transportation grid.
