Walking can be a great way to get somewhere. By walking to and from your destination, you will not only get some fresh air and exercise, but also see what is going on in your neighborhood. In fact, if your neighborhood is a good place to walk, it probably is also a good place to live.

Not sure how to start? If you are using public transit to travel, you are already walking – to get to or from your bus or SIR station. Try getting off a station early and walking the rest of the distance. You may just find a new shop, meet a neighbor, or even make a friend!

Make sure to sit down with a map first to get your bearings. Do a “test walk” in the daytime before committing to a regular commute. If you see a dangerous sidewalk condition, report it to 311. If you believe the sidewalk facilities in your area are inadequate, contact your local government representative and ask for better sidewalk conditions.
