America's Most Walkable Cities

amtrak locomotive If Amtrak goes out of business, some of these cities will become less walkable (and driveable).

Tops on the list: Arlington, Virginia, where 23% of the city’s workforce uses public transit to get to work (many of them, no doubt, using a transit system paid for by federal tax dollars so they can commute to government jobs. Ironic that the federal government then wants to slash funding for so many other forms of public transportation, like Amtrak). San Francisco, Seattle and Portland (Oregon) round out the cities ranked more walkable than Boston. (Washington, D.C. was 6th; New York ranked 7th).
