Snohomish County Pathways for Active Transportation Survey Results

Snohomish County presented its Pathways for Active Transportation project to the public and stakeholders through an online open house in a survey from September 27th - October 27th.  An abbreviated version of the survey results was shared at the BIKES Club meeting on January 9th, 2020 where only the bicycling portion was shared.  The complete survey results are shown in the PowerPoint slide show below for Pedestrian, Bicycling and demographic information about survey respondents.
