In a 15-minute city, most residents can reach a variety of stores, restaurants, parks, and jobs within about a 15 minute walk or bike ride. Part of advocating for a bike-friendly city is evaluating the zoning laws and understanding where people live in relation to where they work, shop, and meet friends. This tool is a prototype letting you see what's 15 minutes away from a starting point. You can explore the shops and estimate how much street parking and how many people live within a walkshed.


The tool is quite simple right now. If you have an idea how this could be used for advocacy, please get in touch.
