Walk Score is the world’s leading measure of neighborhood walkability and helps people find places to live with short commutes and great nearby places.
Walk Score data is used by over 30,000 real estate sites and over 13 million scores per day are viewed across this network. Walk Score products include an interactive Neighborhood Map, the Walk Score API, Public Transit API, and Travel Time API.
Walk Score also provides data about walkability, public transit, biking, car sharing, and other neighborhood characteristics to analysts in the real estate, public health, and financial industries. An independent study by CEOs for Cities found that one point of Walk Score is worth up to $3,000 depending on the metro area.
The Walk Score mission is to promote walkable neighborhoods for their environmental, health, and economic benefits.
Walk Score currently supports the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
