Achieve a more accessible and inclusive Redmond through its streets, trails, and transit

Strategic Priorities

Safer Streets

No one should be killed or seriously injured by Redmond’s transportation system. We will advocate for policies and infrastructure that reduce serious injuries and fatalities on our streets. Move Redmond will work to ensure that the Vision Zero resolution is implemented through the City of Redmond’s Transportation Master Plan. We will advocate to fund projects that reduce speeds, enhance pedestrian crossings, and build protected bike lanes.

Frequent, Reliable, & Affordable Transportation Options

Move Redmond believes in transportation options. Our organization will advocate for funding that supports better streets, trails, and transit in Redmond. Frequent and reliable transit ensures everyone who works or lives in Redmond is able to get around without a car, regardless of age, ability, culture, race or income. We will monitor policies and funding opportunities at the Federal, State, and Local levels to identify funding for transit, walking and biking. Move Redmond will leverage the investment of Eastlink light rail by supporting safe access to transit.

Support Change in Individual Transportation Habits

Move Redmond will work closely with our Member Organizations and Community Partners to support individual people in shifting their transportation habits. We will leverage our Commute Trip Reduction and Transportation Demand Management work to give people the tools they need to transform their commutes. We will connect with the broader public in Redmond through our annual Open
Streets Festival.

Kelli loves getting outside, moving her body, and exploring the PNW. One of her favorite ways to do that is to go bike camping! If you want tips on bike camping with small children, just ask!
