Walking is the most fundamental form of transportation. Everyone is a pedestrian at some point in their day. It's how transit passengers reach their destination, how people driving get from the curb to the front door, and those riding a bike get from the bike rack to their end point.

Every trip begins and ends on foot – whether it’s walking to the bus stop, locating a car share vehicle, or taking a mobility scooter to go get a coffee. The City is already one of the most pedestrian friendly communities in the region, and we are working to make walking easier, safer, and more accessible. 


Walking is a great way to get around and is one of the best ways to get and stay physically active. It's accessible and inexpensive, all you need is a good pair of shoes. Walking also helps to create more livable communities, reduce vehicle-related air pollution and reduce traffic congestion.
