While new tech like autonomous and electric vehicles have captured the spotlight, old-fashioned walking is key to a proficient mobility network. Cities from London to Bogota are expanding pathways to encourage walking and biking.

Half of the cities listed in the chart below – Hong Kong, Paris, Berlin, Helsinki, and Stockholm – land in the overall top 10 of our index.
