Each street is rated for walkability in the following eight categories:
- Road safety;
- Easy to cross;
- Pavement/Sidewalk quality;
- Fear of crime;
- Smart & beautiful;
- Fun & relaxing.
Ratings are automatically generated from Open Data and then refined using real peoples reviews.
The app also uses OpenStreetMap to map the parts of your neighbourhood that you can walk to in 5 minutes. So why not see how walkable your street and neighbourhood is and add your own rating.
