Seattle Squeeze for Bellevueites
You’re probably aware of the “Seattle Squeeze” shutdown of Highway 99 in downtown Seattle for three weeks, impacting travel across the region. But what you may not know is that the traffic challenges are expected to continue for the next five years as crews tackle other transportation projects that will affect Bellevue commuters. 

To help workers, residents and students get to and from Bellevue, now and in the future, the city has created a new page to help Bellevueites learn how to get around during the Squeeze! Go to for the following: 
  • The latest news on what is happening with the “Squeeze”;
  • How-to information on using travel modes such as transit, carpooling, vanpooling, walking, biking and telecommuting;
  • Free trip planning assistance to help you navigate around construction;
  • Incentive programs such as Choose Your Way Bellevue Rewards and to encourage people to use new commute modes
  • Help starting or joining a carpool or vanpool; and
  • Rewards and incentives for trying biking facilities and services in Bellevue, such as the Downtown Demonstration Bikeway and bike share pilot
Don’t forget to also follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram; or drop us a note at that we can post, in order to share ideas with others for how to beat the Squeeze!
Share A Picture Of Your Bike Trip and Be Rewarded!
Cloudy weather with a side of Seattle Squeeze got you down? Choose Your Way Bellevue wants to perk you up! A lot of bike goodness happened in Bellevue in 2018 and we want to keep that momentum rolling in the new year.  So with that in mind we’re giving away backpacks, bike lights, bells, and winter bike socks and all you have to do is send us a selfie so we can share your smile on social media!
Interested? Here are three easy steps that will score you some free swag:

Step 1: Pull your bike out of winter hibernation or find the nearest Bikeshare Bike, and then go for a ride in Bellevue!

Step 2: Enjoy your fast, easy, convenient bike ride and snap a selfie with your bike, or the view from your handlebars (while not in motion of course!), within the Bellevue city limits! Or better yet, grab a friend to play photog and go for a ride with you!

Step 3: Email us your photo ( and provide us with your mailing address. Just for taking a ride and sharing your photo, we’ll send you a fancy, limited edition Choose Your Way Bellevue backpack stuffed with goodies inside, like bike lights, a bell and winter socks. (While supplies last. Let us know if you don’t want us to post your photo publicly.)

The Fine Print:
We only have a limited number of goodies, so this promotion is first-come, first-served limited to Bellevue riders. One reward per rider. Photos must be taken within the City of Bellevue. We want to share your smiling selfies with the world, but we do respect your privacy–let us know if you don’t want us to share your photos on social media.

Take the Survey: Zero traffic-related deaths and serious injures by 2030!
The City is currently creating a Vision Zero Action Plan to coordinate existing programs and identify opportunities where new efforts are needed to make Bellevue’s streets safe for everyone. Whatever someone’s age, physical ability, or how they choose to travel—walking, bicycling, transit, driving, or otherwise—they should get wherever they want to be safely in Bellevue.

Feedback from this questionnaire will help City staff better understand the public’s perceptions about street safety and what factors feel most threatening to people traveling in Bellevue. Responses will be used to develop strategies and take action.
