WALKit - Age Friendly Pedestrian Routes

Encouraging seniors to be more mobile and engaged within their communities

Program Highlights

Project Description

  • This project seeks to reduce social isolation and encourage active transportation by providing a tool that takes into consideration as to how seniors are going to and from their destinations within their neighbourhood.

Project Highlights

  • WALKit web map is scheduled to launch August 2021. Take time out this summer to explore new pedestrian routes in your neighbourhood.                     

Timing/Location

  • WALKit web map is currently a ‘pilot’ focused in the Newton community for implementation and evaluation.                               

What our seniors are saying

"Walking is an essential daily exercise for seniors. So, it is important to feel safe and convenient to walk in our community. Having an App like what we have discussed would be amazing. The App should clearly indicate the routes, especially where to not walk if there’s construction or repair going on. It should be able to suggest a safe and clear route for users."
