Londoners and visitors — whether or not they go to Sloane Square — can turn to a new site — walkit.com — for detailed point-to-point walking directions, calorie burnings and CO2 savings. Sometimes walking is faster and more convenient than public transit or even taxis.
The BBC has a 2006 story on it, too.
There’s less of a need in Enlightenment-designed Washington, but it would be rather nice here, too.
As it happens, New Day Job is within walking distance of home, a pleasure Hubby already enjoys. But rats! New Day Job has a transit benefit — up to a $110 a month tax-free. I’ll be able to claim $20 tops. But this sounds like a place where you’re a winner whether you walk or take Metro, and better than subsidizing gridlock with free or discounted parking. Perhaps some urban churches can offer the same for their staffs.
