About Walk Score
Walk Score's mission is to promote walkable neighborhoods. Walkable neighborhoods are one of the simplest and best solutions for the environment, our health, and our economy.
Our vision is for every property listing to read: Beds: 3 Baths: 2 Walk Score: 84. We want to make it easy for people to evaluate walkability and transportation when choosing where to live.
In addition to www.walkscore.com, we provide Walk Score Professional, which makes it easy to integrate Walk Score into other websites. We also provide Walk Score data to researchers. We have multiple patents pending on our scoring and search technologies.
We show over 20 million scores every day and over 30,000 sites use Walk Score services. Walk Score has been featured in hundreds of newspaper articles and TV segments.
The Walk Score advisory board includes urban planning, environmental and technical experts from institutions such as The Sightline Institute and The Brookings Institution.
Walk Score is backed by a group of leading Seattle angel investors and was originally incubated at Front Seat.
