Transportation affects many things in our daily lives, including our health and safety. We have long focused on improving the safety of the region's transportation network and have recently begun looking into how transportation options affect health.
Active transportation, such as walking (including walking to transit) or riding a bike, can help people get more exercise in their daily routines. Not only is this good for physical and mental health, but it also helps reduce traffic congestion and decreases air pollution.
