Celebrate Walk to Work Day This Thursday

Tuesday, April 4, 2017

Join us for San Francisco’s fifth annual Walk to Work Day this Thursday, April 6 to celebrate foot-based transportation in one of the most walkable cities in the country.

Walk to Work Day, organized by Walk SF and sponsored by the SFMTA, is a great chance to see how easy, fun, and energizing it can be to integrate walking into your daily life. Every trip – whether it’s by car, transit or even bicycle – starts and ends with walking, so just about anyone can work in an opportunity to see the city by foot.

Celebrate Walk to Work Day on April 6 – even walking for 15 minutes of your commute counts.

With more Vision Zero street safety improvements than ever, like more visible crosswalks and safer traffic signal timing, there’s never been a better time to explore San Francisco from the ground up.

You can enjoy our latest pedestrian-friendly project in Hayes Valley, where a block of Octavia Street at Patricia’s Green (Hayes Street) is closed to vehicle traffic for a week-long “open streets” trial. From 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m., on Thursday we’ll hold a “Lunchtime Walk n’ Talk” starting there, where you can discuss ideas for improvements to make the neighborhood safer and more livable.

Walk for just 15 minutes of your morning commute – your efforts will be rewarded if you stop at one of the 11 Walk to Work Day hubs throughout the city to get free tote bags, safety lights, coffee, breakfast snacks and more. As with past events, we’ll be out to encourage participants at the hub outside SFMTA headquarters at the corner of Market Street and South Van Ness Avenue.
