Walk Tall!

Walkability Mobile App

How comfortable and safe a footpath or sidewalk is, determines it’s “Walkability”. Have you ever come across a street, which has broken sidewalks or footpaths, has no street lights, is too high to step on, has an open manhole – in simple words, it is unsafe and makes walking unpleasant?

Continuing with Clean Air Asia’s extensive work on Walkability across 23 Asian cities, it has developed an app to enable a common man to carry out walkability audits and convey the results to the authorities. The app works on android and iphone operating system and the results are mapped using a GPS. Usage of mobile apps is becoming popular across the globe, largely due to the high growth of internet and smart phone penetration and people’s willingness to contribute to improving the system albeit in a small way. This is a first of its kind in the world and the idea is to promote and communicate that safe walking is everyone’s right – irrespective of age, gender, education and background. Let’s Walk Taller!
