Each April, Walk San Francisco hosts Walk to Work Day, a fun and festive day of encouragement celebrating the most healthy, sustainable form of transportation: walking. People who live and/or work in San Francisco are encouraged to walk just 15 minutes of their daily commute (whether traveling to work, school, church, temple, or shops).
On Walk to Work Day, thousands of participants get rewarded at one of the hosted “Hubs” across the city, where FREE Clipper Cards, totes, coffee, or breakfast snacks are provided. Contest prizes are also awarded for the “Longest Commute” by foot, the “Most Interesting Sight,” and the “Best Shoe Bling.”
To secure sponsorships for 2016, including 30 days of advertising space on Muni buses and light-rail vehicles, contact Walk SF.
At the last Walk to Work Day, eight of the City’s eleven District Supervisors joined Walk SF, along with Police Chief Suhr, Fire Chief Hayes-White, District Attorney Gascon, and the heads of city agencies including the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, Public Works, the Department of the Environment, the San Francisco County Transportation Authority, and thousands of San Franciscans to celebrate Walk to Work Day at one of fourteen ‘Hubs’ across the city. For that morning, pedestrian traffic increased 18% compared to the prior month (as reported by MotionLoft)!
Walk to Work Day is the perfect time to see how easy, fun, and energizing it can be to integrate walking into your daily life.
