Phinney-Greenwood one of top neighborhoods in city’s Walk Bike Ride Challenge

August 4th, 2011 · Comments

Seattle Department of Transportation’s “Walk Bike Ride Challenge” program challenges people to get out of their cars for the summer, and they’re even having a friendly neighborhood competition to see who can save the most car trips or car miles.

So far, Phinney-Greenwood is in the top two or three neighborhoods in certain categories:

  • #2 for the number of participants signed up
  • #3 for trips switched to walking, biking or riding
  • #3 for miles of driving saved
  • 4,850 miles of driving saved so far

The graph below shows PhinneyWood in third place for miles of driving saved (behind Queen Anne and Ballard). The SDOT blog shows a graph of the number of trips switched by neighborhood.

Sign up for Walk Bike Ride and you’ll receive weekly emails with encouragement and tips, and for every trip you switch you earn a chance to win prizes like an electric bike, iPad, one-night stay at the Pan Pacific Hotel and more.

Check out the Seattle Walking Map and the Seattle Bike Map to help you get around. Walk Bike Ridge goes through the end of August.
