Take ownership of your streets, improve or share the walkability of your street.
Walk [Your City] empowers you to promote walkability in your community by creating, producing and installing pedestrian wayfinding signs.
Right now, the first 100 Beta users get 2 free signs, so go ahead → Build a sign!
Walking builds the local sense of community and helps citizens become more engaged.
Our platform helps community groups, schools and non-profits become neighborhood advocates by making it easy for you to promote walkability.
Walk [Your City] provides a quick, light, affordable and trackable option for providing pedestrian wayfinding. Pedestrians improve the health of a city socially, economically and environmentally.
Communities all over the globe have been inspired by our original guerrilla wayfinding project as a way to improve pedestrian mobility, safety, and health.

1:4 citizens took one useful, 10 minute walk each day.
Now that number is 1:10.
More people live in cities now than ever before. What makes a place more or less walkable is determined by the choices you have to walk somewhere useful as part of your everyday routine. Walkability is becoming a major factor in how we, both citizens and cities, are shaping our future communities.
We have some big ideas, but are starting small. Join us in this first step by putting up a sign in your community.
To get more feet on the street, our mission focuses on the three topics below: civic innovation, social health and economic growth.
Civic innovation is about finding new ways of solving old problems and improving how society works for citizens and the society they live within.
Starting with our Sign Builder, Walk [Your City] supports members of a community (citizens or municipalities) in that mission by helping promote walkability.
Our technology builds traditional municipal wayfinding in a much lighter, quicker, and less expensive version — integrating data collection and engagement reporting.
More feet on the street also means more wallets by your door (we are talking to you, local businesses).
The more walkable the community, the easier for citizens to be more routine patrons, not to mention it lowers the risk for new investment by both the public (infrastructure) and private (buildings) sectors to enter more walkable communities.
Walk Raleigh started in January of 2012. It was our initial guerrilla (unsanctioned & self initiated) wayfinding project, aimed at creating a healthier community.
A year later the City of Raleigh officially adopted the program as a key campaign to improve pedestrian mobility, safety, and health. Check out the report here.
