Where are existing publicly accessible interior pedestrian walkways? The Park-DTX tunnel, the Prudential Station-Prudential Center-Copley Place-Back Bay Station connectors. North Station transit-commuter rail connector...

Most existing walkways have a transit component except for the Pru-Copley Place skybridge.

Seems like skybridges would be pretty exclusively private developments, while any underground tunneling would be involved in transit somehow.

dmdogs, what corridors do you have in mind?

Really the entire Pru/Copley Place complex is a pedestrian skyway over the Pike and rail lines. (Way more than just the Huntington Avenue and Stuart Street bridges). The mall complex provides essential multi-point connectivity between Back Bay and the South End.

Also, although a private set of complexes, the pedestrian access is mandated as 24/7/365 (IIRC).
