Driving may be our specialty but we like walking too…

We all know Toyota is a big part of people getting from place to place. When we think about the mobility Toyota provides though, we probably think more of vehicle transportation instead of people’s physical mobility such as walking and running. But Toyota actually has a big hand in that too.
