​Bike Facilities

The Kitsap County Bicycles Facilities Plan encourages the use of non-motorized transportation by linking population centers and highly used destinations. Additionally, it provides for connecting to and between recreational facilities.

Non-Motorized Facilities

Non-Motorized Facilities are designed primarily for pedestrians and bicyclists. They include paved shoulders, bike lanes, and shared use paths, trails and sidewalks. 

Efforts for a regional connected system began with a Kitsap Regional Coordinating Council (KRCC) document entitled "Looking for Linkage" in 2010. The North Kitsap "String of Pearls Trail Plan" was adopted by Kitsap on November 28, 2011 by ordinance 478-2011. This plan incorporates and expands the North Kitsap Plan and includes the plans adopted by the cities of Bremerton, Port Orchard and Poulsbo and Bainbridge Island. This regional plan does not replace any local or city plans; in fact, it builds and depends upon local plans and initiatives.

ADA Transition Plan
Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits denying persons with disabilities equal opportunity to participate in city and county services, programs or activities. This includes public rights-of-way, such as sidewalks and pedestrian ramps. 
In order to comply with the Federal requirements, Kitsap County is developing an ADA Transition Plan. The Departments of Public Works, Human Resources, and other County agencies along with the Kitsap County ADA Committee, are working together to ensure the Transition Plan is holistic and comprehensive.
