  • Move to toronto
    I would look on realtor.ca or an easier user interface would be condos.ca. Then look at walkscore.com at that point if you don't see a match for price and size to amenity, you'll know what the landscape is best. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Could I survive in GR without a car until next spring?
    It depends on what neighborhood. If you're just going off of walkscore.com, etc, even though the city itself only gets a 56, many neighborhood are in the mid-high 80s. (East hills, Eastown, Midtown, etc). Source: about 1 year ago
  • Family tired of the suburbs, thinking of moving to the city
    Perhaps look at walkscore.com also to assess the areas you are considering. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Is the Pearl District Safe?
    Keep in mind that those top 10 types of lists are driven by advertisers and are highly subjective. If finances are a consideration, there are MANY very walkable neighborhoods that are far lower cost of living. Use walkscore.com as a starting point. Source: over 1 year ago
  • LA Times Column: California’s population is on the decline, and high-income earners have joined the exodus
    Not owning a car really helped me save enough to buy a house in an old streetcar district. The weather is (usually) great so most trips are made via transit or bike. We're still car-free in our mid-50s. Try walkscore.com to find neighborhoods over 80. Ours gets a 91. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Moving in May, need some advice
    - what are the walkable areas (places where groceries, transit, and the gym are nearby)? I looked at walkscore.com and saw it was mostly downtown but was interested in hearing what other people have to say. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Is housing expensive because we're suing the City over 31 units at an old gas station?
    Your example, Tenney-Lapham, is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in Madison. If you want to put #s on it, the proposed location on Speedway has a Walk Score of 45, a Transit Score of 38, and a Bike Score of 70. The Tenney-Lapham location has a Walk Score of 80, a Transit Score of 46, and a Bike Score of 93 (per walkscore.com). Source: over 1 year ago
  • How can you tell if a residential neighborhood is a good place before buying a home?
    - If it's urban or semi-urban, look at walkscore.com to see facilities within walking, biking, or transit distance. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Considering a move to Norfolk
    And walkscore.com is a decent tool for seeing how walkable neighborhoods are - Zillow embeds their score on listings. Source: over 1 year ago
  • What level of density is really needed for walkability and good transit?
    Making up a measure of walkability has to deal with this and a lot of other variables. The so-called "walkscore" in walkscore.com attempts to quantify this, though their methodology is not open. It's certainly possible with today's data to build such a thing. See https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4845902/. Source: over 1 year ago
  • California will soon eliminate parking mandates near transit; here’s how that will impact Long Beach
    P.S. While all of California is car-oriented, Long Beach already does better than a lot of our neighboring cities for alternative transportation. We score 73 for Walkability 49 on Transit and 70 on Bike access. Compare that to Huntington Beach (W56 T30 B71) and Torrance (W67 T37 B54). (Source: walkscore.com ). Source: almost 2 years ago
  • thank u for being a wonderful first visit, toronto.
    Go to walkscore.com just to see how walkable a lot of the city really is. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • What do you think are the most walkable/bikeable *small* cities in the US and Canada?
    Using the data in walkscore.com and US cities population 75-125000, the only cities with the same or better walk and bike scores are Berkeley CA and Mountain View CA. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Advice for pubic transit
    Walkscore.com also gives a transit score. Put the address in there and start comparing. Anything walking distance to a light rail station is going to be super convenient. Anything within the city of Seattle will have a bus you can walk to. If you get out further into the far suburbs then it will be much tougher (Redmond Ridge, Snoqualmie, etc.).

  • what is a happy compromise between suburban and urban?
    Look at https://walkscore.com to type in an address and see how the world looks through this lens. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Best City for Cycling in Every State
    I don't think it was the authors choice, it's from walkscore.com. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Best website to find Apartments?
    Whatever apartment site you use, I highly recommend using walkscore.com to evaluate convenience of any apartment. You can also find the sweetspot for commuting to multiple destinations. Source: about 2 years ago
  • List of (truly) bicycle-friendly cities?
    Many of the Google results I found seem to derive from the Bike Score of walkscore.com. For the US, they rank cities:. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Do walk and bike scores really matter?
    Going to go middle of the road on this one: I certainly understand your frustration with attempting to use a site like walkscore.com to get accurate green accessibility (walk/bike/transit access) data, but, from their perspective, they always have--and seemingly always will be--merely a starting point from which a prospective buyer/renter/hotel guest will have to do his/her due diligence. Source: about 2 years ago
  • How's the metrorail?
    Long story short, use walkscore.com to pick where you live. Houston can be pretty manageable without a car, but it takes advance planning. Most people don't use public transit, so they only have a general concept of what is transit accessible. Actually using transit is much more granular - living right next to a train or bus stop that goes right to your work is very different from living 10 blocks away in what... Source: over 2 years ago
  • Now is a terrible time to buy a used car.
    It works best in neighborhood where streetcars once ran. There is usually enough density to support good transit and streets with shops for essentials. walkscore.com is a great place to find walkable neighborhoods. Source: over 2 years ago
