Saturday Status: #9 for Best Job Accessibility by Walking
This one is a bit surprising for me. When you think about highly walkable cities, usually you don't think of San Jose. However, based on a recent study of the 50 largest metro areas in the US, San Jose came in 9th for job accessibility via walking. Most of the population of San Jose is within a 30 minute walk to over 50,000 jobs. In Downtown San Jose, Japantown, and along North First Street, that number rises to about 100,000 jobs.
