Walk audits are a great tool in creating communities where residents can participate in making their vision of healthy, safe, walkable streets real.

In a walk audit, community members go for a walk together, noting what makes their streets feel comfortable for walking and what’s missing. But what to do with this information? In this webinar, we'll hear from community partners in Oregon & Washington who have completed walk audits, and explore next steps for turning their vision into reality. Join us on November 15 at 10am PT/1pm ET.

For high school students, Youth Pass is the logical next step to helping reduce congestion and reliance on vehicles, provides independent travel options, and builds future transit riders.
