About Us

Hi! We’re WalkArlington. We think everyone deserves to live where it is easy and comfortable to get around at any age and ability—where the grocery store is just steps away, the streets support human activity, and there are spaces for community.

If that sounds appealing to you, you’re in the right place. Our mission is to get more people walking, more of the time, in a more walkable environment in Arlington County, Virginia.

Here on our website you can find our walking tours and events, updates about walking projects around the County, self-guided walking route maps, and resources to support better walking in Arlington.

Program Background

WalkArlington is Arlington County’s walking education and encouragement program, started in 2009. Active modes of transportation, including walking, biking, and rolling are central to Arlington’s vision of an equitable transportation system that enhances the overall quality of life for those who live, work and play here.

WalkArlington supports the County’s vision by working collaboratively with local citizens, businesses, stakeholders, and County departments to offer programs that promote active transportation choices!

WalkArlington is a program of Arlington County Commuter Services (ACCS), a bureau of Arlington’s Department of Environmental Services. ACCS serves people who live, work or visit Arlington through programs and services that are designed to encourage the use of mass transit, carpooling and vanpooling, bicycling, walking, teleworking, and other alternatives to driving alone.
