Practically speaking, a bicycle is an immediate practical solution. You can have one on the road for under $200 and cut 80% or more off walking times wherever you're going with very little further investment. Public transit is great...if you have an established and frequent bus route near you, which a very large number of people don't. If you think getting new bike lanes is hard for marginalized areas, try requesting a new bus route for your community and see how long that takes. And while bikes can still travel through areas without bike lanes, any gaps in a trip by transit leave you with no other option but to walk.
