Los Angeles is still not particularly walkable, but it is getting there! It's now the thirteenth most walkable big city, according to Walk Score, which calculates these things based on access to neighborhood amenities like supermarkets, parks, and schools. Los Angeles has a score of 64 (out of 100), but its most walkable neighborhoods (obviously, statistically) do much better. Number one: Downtown, up one point to 93 from the last rankings in 2011. Despite the massive bikeification push under Mayor Villaraigosa, the city's Bike Score is still only at 54; Transit Score is at 49.
