About Us

At WalkBoston, we know that walking improves personal, economic, environmental and civic health. Working on walking takes us across Massachusetts to empower people with knowledge and proven strategies to make their own communities more walkable. Our focus areas define the content of our work and provide a structure that guides our efforts.


Pedestrian safety

Reduce the number of walkers killed / injured statewide.


Walkable communities 

Engage & build community through walk audits, workshops, & advocacy training.


Age-friendly walking

Adopt policies and practices that increase safety for children and older adults.


Transit connections

Promote safe walking connections to transit statewide.


Rural walking

Walking policy & design

Influence projects, policy, and legislation on local, state, & national levels.


Vision Zero

A data-driven approach to traffic safety that is designed to eliminate traffic fatalities and severe injuries for all modes.


Snow clearance

There is much to be done to improve sidewalk, curb ramp, bus stop, and traffic island snow shoveling to make Massachusetts pedestrian-friendly year round.


Wayfinding

Wayfinding signs can give people clear information about walking routes and walking times to reach key destinations.


Running 

Runners use the same sidewalks and paths as walkers, and also have a special need for safer access to and from Massachusetts’ parkway and park systems.
