Wish you could spend less time in your car? Our new Apartment Search features are for you!
Just six weeks ago we launched apartment search by commute time. Now we’ve added the ability to search by multiple commutes.
Let’s say you bike to work downtown and your spouse or roommate takes the bus to school. Walk Score finds apartments that optimize the commute of everyone in your home. See an example commute search.
Find Apartments Near Transit
Want to find an apartment within walking distance of the subway or the express bus that goes to your office?
No problem, with our new “Near Transit” search option you can select the transit route that you’d like to live near and how far you’re willing to walk to the stop. See transit search in action.
Search by Walk Score
Whether you want to be in the heart of it all, or just don’t want to have to drive to get a cup of coffee, Apartment Search now includes the ability to search by Walk Score.
Select the Walk Score search filter and click Walker’s Paradise to find only Walk Score 90+ apartments. See Walker’s Paradise apartments in Seattle.
