A collaboration of the three Pittsburgh area TMAs (ACTA, OTMA and PDP TMA) and sponsored by UPMC and the University of Pittsburgh, Walk Pittsburgh is working to make Pittsburgh one of America’s most walkable cities. Through its website and smart phone app the program provides resources and support to encourage walking as a viable commuting option, improve pedestrian safety, communicate the health and economic benefits of walking, and ensure that walkability is factored into transportation and development plans.
Walk Pittsburgh participants log their daily steps with our pedometer app that is free to download in either the Apple app or Google Play stores. Participants can see how their steps impact the environment and their overall well-being by checking our home page dashboard which details the number of total steps taken, the distance walked, the gallons of gasoline saved and the amount of CO2 eliminated.
