People are embracing walkable lives in Edmonton.


Coming from Montreal, I was so used to being so close to everything.

I found the Pogo Car Share website, downloaded the zone, I found where all the LRT stations were and wrote them on that piece of paper. Then started by rent search based on that.

That was how I wanted to live—in a place where I could have access to public transit, car share. They just made a bike path on my street here, so I bike as often as I can. I walk to yoga, the grocery store, to the pharmacy. Everything is here.

Even if it's just a drop in the bucket— considering all the F-150s that you see driving around—I want to be able to live that way.

I wasn't sure it was going to be possible in Edmonton, to be honest, but it is.

It's not only possible, it's happening.

I don’t own a car. I don’t even have a drivers’ license.

I live downtown. I’m been downtown for the better part of six years. Six years-ish.

There’s so much to access—literally anything. All the things I value in my day-to-day experience. Walkability for me is to be able to go about and successfully do the things I need to do in a day, using only my own two feet.

You can really build an awesome little community of like-minded people. It’s hard not to walk down the street on any given day and meet someone I know.
