Accessible Places

Accessible Places are those where you have a choice of how to get around. If you can choose to drive, walk, bike, or take the train, then you can do what makes the most sense. If you can only drive, then you have no choice, nor do any of the other people clogging the highway ahead of you. The New Urbanism has developed many tools over the past quarter-century to deliver transportation choice. And that choice must prefer self-propelled methods above those that are driven by engines, because transportation choice isn’t just about using less fuel, but must include the option of using no fuel at all. The benefits of walking and biking go beyond saving fuel, however, as they are the only modes of transportation that actually make you healthier. The New Urbanism now has a full toolbox for creating accessible places.
