Salt Lake City Best Walk Score in Utah
Congratulations to Salt Lake City, achieving the highest Walk Score in Utah!
The Walk Score is an easy to use metric that helps people evaluate walkability and transportation when choosing where to live.
Their mission “To promote walkable neighborhoods. Walkable neighborhoods are one of the simplest and best solutions for the environment, our health, and our economy.”
Some of the great insights from their site:
How the Walk Score Works
Walk Score is a number between 0 and 100 that measures the walkability of any address. The exact methodology is described on their website, some highlights are that scores above 70 are considered ‘Very Walkable”, and scores below 50 indicate most errands require a car. Salt Lake City also ranks atop the Transit Score, and Bike Score rankings, providing residents with a range of convenient and sustainable options when making transportation decisions.
Of course there are many other factors to consider including ridesharing, working from home, and personal commutes, which are all substantial factors in the total analysis of one place to another, but we like the Walk Score for adding one more useful ingredient when searching for the right home.
