The Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC) recently announced the country’s 11 most Walk Friendly Communities based on factors related to safety, mobility, access and comfort.
It’s nice to see this, the League of American Bicyclists has been handing out bicycle-friendly community awards for years, but comprehensive, standardized analyses of walkability have been lacking. Nice to see PBIC pick up on this and do the analyses.
Check out the US’ top pedestrian communities on the following pages, arranged according to award level (Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum), with some extra info on each city via PBIC (much more info is available on the PBIC city pages linked to each city name):
