Phoenix: Walk Score

The Phoenix Planning Department used Walk Score data to analyze the performance of existing light rail stations and to look at how proposed stations might perform if they were within a walking network connecting passengers to desired amenities.

Walk Score data helped planners clarify which corridors and station locations performed best from a land use perspective. Phoenix plans to use Walk Score data in a similar fashion to evaluate the performance of the city’s canal corridors.
