Having a car-free commute to work is a priority for many urban millennials seeking a convenient distance between their home and office. This is where the Walk Score platform comes in, offering a search engine that allows consumers to find jobs that are within walking distance for simple daily commutes. The app is an asset to consumers that don't own a vehicle and are seeking a job that is close to where they already reside.
The Walk Score platform is a sister tool to the Opportunity Score app designed to offer a rating of 350 different American cities by job availability, population and housing. Users can type in their address to find jobs with a minimum of a $40,000 pay that are less than 30-minutes away.
