Transportation Essentials

One of our goals at Active Living by Design is to promote physical activity by increasing the range of practical transportation choices and expanding opportunities for active routine travel. There is growing evidence that current transportation infrastructure and land use patterns which promote automobile dependency discourage active transportation and increase health and safety risks for those who are active. A more balanced transportation and land use system which is more supportive of walking, biking, transit and other more active forms of travel would help make healthy levels of physical activity more attainable for large numbers of people during their daily routine. This page offers some important resources to help facilitate your work on this important part of active living.
