What is Active Living?
Active living integrates physical activity into daily routines, such
as walking to school, work, or to shop. Walking just 30 minutes a day
- 10 minutes at a time - 5 days a week - is enough to improve your
health. Discover your neighborhood, and walk to active living!

North Beacon Hill Council
Feet First works in Beacon Hill to
advocate specific projects that
promote active living. Designs that
make it easier to get around via foot,
bicycle, or bus promote stronger
communities, a cleaner environment,
and better health for residents.

activity events such as tai chi, and build stronger,
healthier community ties.
Bussing and Active Living
Bussing is a great way to save on gas, walk more,
and contribute less to climate change. Many of
the routes in Beacon - the 4, 7, 17, and 36 - are
clean, quiet electric trolley buses, which emit zero
pollution. For locations, see the map side.
You can also plan your bus trip with Metro's
Regional Trip Planner. Enter your location
and destination, and let Metro do the rest!
Go to www.tripplanner.metrokc.gov or call 5533000. For fares, schedules, and routes, see:
www.transit.metrokc.gov
Neighborhoods on Foot: The Neighborhoods on Foot map series is a guide to promote

The history of North Beacon Hill is intertwined with the history of transportation. From the streetcars in the
early 1900s, to "the Jungle" created during the construction of I-5, to the light rail stop arriving in 2009, the
neighborhood is continually on the forefront of, and shaped by, Seattle transportation innovation.
