More information

Walk to Work Day is meant to celebrate simplest, and most enjoyable, form of transportation: walking! Anyone who lives or works in San Francisco is invited to participate. Work far away or across the Bay? Just walk part of your commute! Last year, over 10,000 people participated; this year, it’ll be even bigger. MTC is proud to be a sponsor and a host of a Walk to Work Day Hub location. Stop by 375 Beale St. on April 5!
