Walking and biking are good transportation choices for those within a relatively short, safe distance from work, shopping, or school. Others may find biking or walking useful for traveling to the nearest bus stop or park and ride location.
In 30 minutes, you could walk 1.5 miles or make a 5 mile bicycle trip. With proper planning, walking or biking can be as quick and convenient as a trip with your personal vehicle.
Walking and biking are not just great ways to travel to and from work or other activities, but they also help reduce traffic congestion and mobile source pollution.
