Economic Benefits of Walkability

In the U.S., Walkability Is a Premium Good

City Lab reports on a recent study from George Washington University School of Business about the positive economic impact of walkable neighborhoods.

The most interesting part of the report examines the connections between walkability and economic development, education, and social equity. Walkable metros are more affluent... more highly educated... More interestingly, walkable metros have higher levels of social equity, according to the report.
