University District

Within the core of Seattle’s University District, only one in three working residents currently owns an automobile (compared with an 84% car ownership in the rest of Seattle). This makes the U-District a prime candidate for multi-modal transportation infrastructure. As some trips in the U-District are slightly too long to walk and others too short to wait for the next bus, Neighborhood Greenways in the University District would significantly improve residents means of getting around within their own neighborhood.

In May 2011, U-District resident, Eli Goldberg and transportation analyst, David Amiton, gave a presentation to SDOT highlighting needs and opportunities for Neighborhood Greenways within the University District community. And in August 2011, University Greenways was formed to help ensure that Neighborhood Greenways become a safe and viable option for U-District residents, workers, and students.
