10 Most Convenient Cities in America
Walk Score: 74.1
Transit Score: 68
Bike Score: N/A
The city's most walkable neighborhoods in Center City, the Old City and along the riverfront near Penn's Landing are some of the easiest to navigate in the country, but in this town they're pretty much the standard. Except for the extreme northeast, southwest and northwest corners of the city, about 95% of the city is accessible easily by means other than a car. Just don't let its sweet transit score convince you that tons of folks actually ride it. The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority's bus, subway, light rail and commuter rail services handles more than 300 passengers a year, but that's still less than the ridership of Boston's transit system that covers a city nearly one-third Philadelphia's size and a greater metro area with about 1.5 million fewer people.
