Bureau Brief — Walkability

Walkability has numerous benefits, but how walkable an area is can be hard to quantify—while people have good intuitions about whether their neighborhood lends itself well to casual strolls, or how many destinations are easily reachable on foot, it can be harder to put those thoughts and feelings into a context that could inform public policy. In this brief, The Research Bureau has summarized existing research on the subject of walkability, and has used that data and analysis to create a scorecard that Worcester residents can use to assess the pedestrian-friendliness of local roadways.
