MultiModal Network Solving for Multiple Modes

I am trying to create a multimodal network dataset using bus, trains, and streets in Chicago. I've broken the streets up between highways/expressways and all other streets (since pedestrians can't walk on highways).

I've created three connectivity groups: one for bus, train, and then streets. I have created two attributes: drive time and pedestrian time.

After I create the network dataset, I try to calculate a route to see if it works. I set the impedance to Pedestrian Time, but then it does not take into account drive time and vice versa.

I am thinking I will need to create an attribute in my network dataset for "all modes", which would incorporate pedestrian time, drive time, etc., however I am not sure how to duplicate the "streets" evaluators so I have an option to drive or to walk on those streets.

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
