ITDP - Pedestrian first

Walkability is important for everyone, especially for babies, toddlers, and their caregivers. This tool focuses on measuring people’s proximity to everyday needs, like open space, healthcare, education, and transit. To gain the benefits of walkability, cities must be planned so that people live within a walkable distance of their destinations. Because babies and toddlers move slowly, close proximity is especially important for them.

This tool can tell you whether destinations are close enough for people to be able to walk to them, but not whether the streets and neighbourhoods make that walk easy. To understand actual walking conditions, use Examine a Neighborhood or Visit a Street. In this tool, each indicator has a map, an explanation, and a set of policy recommendations.

Access the tool here.
