Get your walking shoes on and walk because Cambridge is ranked #1 as the Most Walkable City in the United States, according to March 2012 ranking from Prevention.com and Walkscore.com. 

The Cambridge Traffic, Parking & Transportation Department, working with the Public Works and Community Development Departments give a lot of attention to the pedestrian conditions in Cambridge. Our efforts have paid off - more people walk to work in Cambridge than any other large city in the country (Governing Magazine, Dec. 13, 2013).  

But we are not resting on our successes and we will continue to make walking a safe and preferred mode of transportation. We continue to work hard to make walking as safe and convenient as can be.

The City's Community Development Department has many resources available about walking in Cambridge.
