interesting,
I expected you to have a high score, too

I imagine there may be a couple that can top us

Yeah, it's not terribly useful for Australia. I'm kind of amused that it gave where I live just 55. The information the site's using seems quite incomplete. Some of it's out-of-date, and some is missing - I'm sure my location would score better than 55 if it registered that there is a tram stop outside my door, and a number of cafes and amenities within 100m.

My girlfriend and I don't own a car. We walk or take the tram everywhere, and owning a car seems like a waste of money to us. On the rare occasion we want or need one, it works out much cheaper to take a taxi or rent a car than to actually maintain our own one.

Just checked my old addresses around Australia - it does seem to work decently as a rough guide for Australian addresses (e.g. two places I lived on the Gold Coast were hideously unwalkable and the site correctly calls them car-dependent). However, it suggests where I lived in Brisbane is more walkable than where I live in Melbourne, which is simply wrong, and all locations have data that is either incomplete or missing. I wouldn't take the precise scores for here too seriously.

Some of the stuff for where I live in Melbourne is just weird, like it labels a pizza shop that has been somebody's private art studio for years and years, yet it doesn't have the post office or chemist just over the road.

My address now scored a 74 which I think is inaccurately high.

My address in Chicago scored a 100! It was a walker's paradise.

48

Considering that sidewalks are in short supply, I guess that's probably fair enough. It's about a 20-minute walk to the nearest grocery store.

15 for my street in Maryland. It's truly living hell to walk there, as my old house teeters precariously on a small mountain/large hill (Bono would argue the former), and it's easier to just not walk up the 75 degree angle. I manage though, and used to walk at least an hour a day for the hell of it. My conditioning used to be really good, but now that I've moved to Indiana where there are no inclines (my street scored 58), I can't walk nearly as long as I used to, and I probably do walk a great deal thanks to the way my campus is laid out.

Looks like mine is 51. There are some places that I can walk to, but yeah, it isn't in the most convenient of locals. I sometimes walk to where I work from my house during the day, and it takes about a half hour or so to get there that way. Eh, at least it's good exercise.

That 58 surprised me, given how much we walk to the grocery stores, movie theater, k-mart, gas stations, fast food, etc. all the time though. And there is transit here. Just because it's a little city doesn't mean that it's impossible to get around.

That's a bit surprising.

Got a big 0 on our score. We live in a rural area, and apparently they greatly value your ability to walk to the coffee shop or movie theater.
