Hey we got ranked again! Provo City was ranked #6 for most walkable city — ranked between Boston and D.C.!
Provo has 12% of commuters walking to work — that is a raw total of 7,417 people. The median age of walking commuters is 22.4 — Ages 16-24 78%, Ages 25-44: 18%, Ages 45-64: 3%.
Nationally, only a small fraction of people primarily walk to work – the measure the Census Bureau estimates in its annual American Communities Survey. In a select group of cities, though, recent data illustrates the extent to which walking has emerged as an everyday means of commuting.
