Hey pedestrians! It’s almost Walktober—a national, month-long celebration of walking and walkability—and we are lining up some great events! Join us to kick off four weeks of events with a citywide Walking Day of Action on October 1.
Join Los Angeles Walks for our Walking Day of Action on Tuesday, October 1, taking place in various intersections across central Los Angeles. Taking a page from Peatonito, the masked defender of pedestrians in Mexico City, we’ll be serving as superheroes for walkers for the day: helping walkers get across the street, providing an exceptional pedestrian experience, and calling out motorists for being inconsiderate — Hey! We’re Walking Here!
