The walkability scores of Californian cities based on amenities can be found here:
Below are the 4 largest cities followed by the four cities with the highest walkscores in California.
(Pasadena and Oakland are there just out of curiosity.)
|City||Zip Code||Median Income||Increase in walking||Walk Score||Transit Score||Bike Score||Population|
If we compare weeks of 21 Oct 2019 and 19 Oct 2020 and look at the percentage change in the modal share of walking trips:
We see Los Angeles, Pasadena, West Hollywood (most walkable), Santa Monica, Huntington Park (m.income: 40k) and Hermosa Beach (m.income: 140k) in the below map:
L.A has lower walkability score based on amenities but has quite a bit of walking activity.
We see San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley and San Jose in the below map.
Like L.A, Oakland has lower walkability but has high walking activity.
We see San Diego in the below map:
Now we take the top and bottom 200 tracts for change in proportion of walking trips and select those in LA County, Alameda County (Oakland) and San Francisco. We then exclude all the tracts that have under 50 average walking trips weekly.
