How easy is it to get around on foot? Hoofit has the answer, based on your current location. It's perfect for anyone considering a move or curious about their surroundings.
Your Walk Score is based on how close you are to neighborhood necessities like groceries, schools, restaurants and coffee. Your Transit Score (available in 150 cities) is based on how many rail and bus routes stop nearby.
Hoofit also shows the average rent for a two bedroom apartment in your current neighborhood.

Hoofit is not the official Walk Score app, but we do get our information from them (and we like them a lot). See walkscore.com for more information.
Why should you care about your walk score?
Environment: Cars are a leading cause of climate change. Your feet are zero-pollution transportation machines.
Health: The average resident of a walkable neighborhood weighs 6-10 pounds less than someone who lives in a sprawling neighborhood.
Finances: One point of Walk Score is worth up to $3,000 of value for your property.
Communities: Studies show that for every 10 minutes a person spends in a daily car commute, time spent in community activities falls by 10%.
