Walk Score, the popular website that ranks specific locations based on how walkable the addresses are to everyday amenities, recently launched Transit Score, which provides a 0 to 100 rating indicating how well an address is served by public transportation.

The score takes into account the mode of public transportation, the frequency and the distance from the address to the nearest stop.

According to the Walk Score press release, ratings range from “Rider’s Paradises” where multiple transit options are available within a quarter of a mile to areas with limited or no nearby public transportation.

We mapped a few addresses across DC to get an idea of what areas offered better public transportation options than others.
