WalkFirst Phase 1: Framework


Phase 1 Overview

October 1, 2010 - September 30, 2011. In 2010, San Francisco received a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety to fund the first phase of WalkFirst, a project to develop a framework for how the City would prioritize future pedestrian improvements. A map of Key Walking Streets (streets where people are walking) and a map of Pedestrian High Injury Corridors (streets with the highest concentration of severe and fatal injuries) were developed.

Existing Conditions Basemaps

The Existing Conditions Base Maps illustrate factors that contribute to where people walk. These pedestrian activity factors will help us figure out where people currently walk in the city (where there are high levels of pedestrian activity), and where they would be likely to walk where good pedestrian conditions exist.

These maps will be used to help us develop a map of key walking streets in San Francisco, and identify which streets or areas should be included on this map. When combined with data about pedestrian safety and physical street conditions, the map of key walking streets will help us to prioritize pedestrian improvements in the city.

The maps are organized by category: Access/Need to Walk; Transit Ridership; Density of People; Pedestrian Generators; Demographics; Street Slope; Income
