After all, you spend a lot of time at work, so why not make it a healthy, productive, and environmentally friendly "walking workplace"?  WalkArlington and Arlington Transportation Partners have done the legwork and gathered the resources for you, so there’s no reason not to give it a try.

What is a Walking Workplace?

A Walking Workplace is an organization that encourages employees to incorporate walking into the work day, whether by changing daily habits, participating in ready-made walking programs, promoting participation in local walking events, or putting together a combination of strategies that fit your workplace.
