Footloose and Fancy Free

Footloose and Fancy Free - Document - Adobe PDF
This field survey attempts to identify the number and location of “regional-serving” walkable urban places in the 30 largest American metropolitan areas in the U.S, where 138 million, or 46 percent, of the US population lives. This field survey determines where these walkable urban places are most prevalent on a per capita basis, where they are generally located within the metro area, and the extent to which rail transit service is associated with walkable urban development.
