Bainbridge GreenWays

Connecting People to Places

Getting where you are going with a light footprint is a vital element of a sustainable community. Bainbridge GreenWays is a program of Sustainable Bainbridge focused on promoting and advocating for sustainable transportation modes on the island.


To help envision, create and support use of an enhanced network of trails, paths, routes and facilities to make biking and walking safe, attractive, and convenient for all across Bainbridge Island.


We envision Bainbridge Island as having an interconnected network of safe routes for walking and biking for people of all ages and abilities. The network will enable people to use their daily journeys to become more physically and mentally healthy, reduce their contributions to climate change, connect more fully with their neighbors, and enjoy the loveliness of this place.


Below you can find a variety of documents relating to the survey on walking and biking on Bainbridge Island conducted by BMA in March 2018. Included is the full question set; a summary of the primary findings; the slide deck for our presentation to Bainbridge City Council on April 17; detailed reporting of the responses for each question; and the full set of free text responses to the question "What else should we do to improve conditions for walking and biking on Bainbridge Island?" organized by main subject. Additional resources will be added as they become available.

Please note the following regarding these documents:

  • The PDF of the question set does not show the skip logic that was used to present selected questions only to applicable respondents based on their responses to filtering questions (eg, commuters, parents of school-aged kids);
  • The response detail shows percentages based on the respondents who answered each specific question - some respondents chose not to answer specific questions, and some questions were presented only to a subset of respondents based on their responses to filtering questions;
  • Subgroup analysis was conducted by BMA members using the survey tool by filtering responses based on  self-reported demographic attributes of survey respondents;
  • The free text responses were grouped by main subject based on analysis by BMA members - some responses addressing multiple subjects appear in more than one subject category.
