"Less than half of all adults get the recommended amount of physical activity," said Turner. "Walking can be the easiest way to reach the recommended amount of 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity per week. Just 20 to 30 minutes a day is a healthy amount for adults."

Creating access to safe forms of active transportation isn't just about exercise. According to Turner, walking and biking are more than recreational hobbies. They could be the main forms of transportation for those who may have no other choice.
