Walk and Bike Scores in Omaha

5 Sep

We posted an article on our Facebook page earlier this week about choosing the right neighborhood if you want to live without a car.

Midtown and downtown have the best transit options. For example, bus #2 runs every 15 or so minutes up and down Dodge from downtown to Westroads.

Otherwise, check out these walk and bike scores for several neighborhoods in Omaha, according to Walk Score®.

    Some neighborhoods are so close to becoming much more walkable. Hopefully developers are looking at the potential to transform a somewhat walkable neighborhood into a very walkable neighborhood. For example, a grocery store in Benson would dramatically improve it’s walkscore.
