    The Capital Element addresses how the city can positively affect the operation and user experience of transit within Bellevue. While the city does not operate its own bus system, it plays a critical role in ensuring that high quality transit is.

    This section of the Transit Master Plan comprises four sub-sections:

    • The Development Lot is where all transit trips begin. This section addresses the relationship between land use and transit service.
    • The Pedestrian and Bicycle Environment serves as the primary link between transit users’ points of origin and transit services.
    • The Transit Stop is the first point of contact between the passenger and the transit service. This section focuses on bus stops, commuter parking and bus layover needs.
    • The Transit Running Way encompasses street rights-of-way on which transit services operate. The Master Plan identifies a total of 107 capital projects.

    For more information about the four subjects addressed by the capital vision, refer to the Capital Element section of the Bellevue Transit Master Plan (70 MB file).
