Downtown Glendale Urban Art Walk

Downtown Glendale Urban Art Walk

On June 2nd, Go Glendale organized a Downtown Glendale Urban Art Walk to discuss the Climate Action and Adaptation Plan (CAAP) for Glendale. We have created a map of the route to allow people to take a self-paced tour of Urban Art at the intersection of mobility and climate resilience.

We hope that the Urban Art Walk will help you explore the city with a greater awareness of Glendale’s urban environment and opportunities for walking, biking and taking transit to your favorite places downtown.

We are always open to hearing your thoughts on the CAAP and have a series of questions and polls posted on our Instagram Stories highlights under “CAAP Feedback”. Leave a comment to be entered into a raffle to win one of two $25 gift cards to Salt & Straw! ūüć¶

Go Glendale 2023 Average Vehicle Ridership Survey Results

In 2023, a significant number of individuals resumed in-person work routines more consistently. With the decrease in telework, this year’s Average Vehicle Ridership (AVR) survey reveals ¬†a promising uptick in sustainable commuting modes and transit as opposed to a mass transition back to single-occupancy vehicles. Throughout October, Go Glendale collaborated with the City of Glendale to conduct an AVR survey across our ten member properties in Downtown Glendale. For one week, we asked you about your commute routines, your thoughts on public transportation, and ideas on what changes could make sustainable commutes to and from Glendale even easier. Go Glendale then analyzed and summarized these results, bringing you the final results in this post.

Explore how commuting in Glendale has evolved, comparing the data with the findings from 2022!

As a note, the Average Vehicle Ridership is a ratio of the number of employee/resident trips over the number of vehicle trips. The higher the ratio, the fewer vehicle trips are being taken in comparison to all trips.
