Yeah. "On foot" might be more common, but if you were asked if you came by bus or by train you might, if you had walked, say "by foot."

If you see me walkin' down the street
And I start to cry each time we meet
Walk on by, walk on by.

DIONNE WARWICK

Mostly by fly and by ride, I'd guess, and I believe she still does.

She can either come by highway
Or she can come by rail
But I got my head in my hands
Wondering what called her to fail

There are bystanders but I don't think you can bystand; therefore I'd say you can't bywalk, either.

You can pass by but avoid a bypass.
