It's National Walking Day!

April 3, 2019

Everyone starts their trip as a pedestrian, whether by walking to their car, heading to a transit station, an e-bike corral, or pushing a stroller down the sidewalk. Some folks, either out of choice or pure necessity, complete entire trips by walking, while others might walk for exercise or to de-stress. The benefits of walking (or rolling) are manifold: reduced air pollution, decreased risk of chronic health conditions, stronger ties to the community, and boosts to the local economy. Simply put, when we plan and design healthy, safe, livable walking communities everybody benefits.
