In 2019, the City Council expressed support in providing a transportation system (streets, transit, trails, etc.) that improves mobility and safety for all users while respecting the character of neighborhoods and maintaining a climate resilient environment. The initiative, which became known as the Sustainable Transportation Plan, will establish the long-range vision for how we travel on the island. In addition, the Council determined that the Sustainable Transportation project should result in a transportation system that supports the overriding goal of the City’s upcoming Climate Action Plan: to reduce carbon emissions on Bainbridge Island by 90% by 2045.

Additional goals identified by the Council include:

  1. Present a unifying vision for the future of transportation on Bainbridge Island;
  2. Create a holistic, inclusive definition of sustainable mobility with suite of solutions;
  3. Integrate the island’s transportation and land use visions;
  4. Complete missing links and make first/last mile connections;
  5. Build a toolbox of facility types and solutions tailored to people of all ages and abilities and the island’s unique contexts; and
  6. Demonstrate transparent decision-making based on community values, with a clear link to implementation planning, investments, and subsequent funding requests.
