Aller à pied...............is always followed by the destination you're getting to:

In the lesson it states that "Aller à pied (literally going by foot) is used when walking is contrasted with another means of transport - walking instead of driving for example - and is always followed by the destination you're getting to:" But an example given is: Je voulais prendre le bus, mais finalement j'y suis allé à pied. In what sense is "allé à pied" followed by the destination in this example?

This relates to:
Se promener, promener, marcher, aller à pied = To walk -

Bonjour Paul,


The adverbial pronoun y is standing in for à + [destination] in this example: https://kwiziq.learnfrenchwithalexa.com/revision/grammar/the-adverbial-pronoun-y-means-there


The point is that you can't say : ... mais finalement je suis allé à pied. 


I hope this helps,
Bonne continuation !
