Active Transportation

Active Transportation refers to walking, biking or using transit for transportation which require physical activity. Active transportation investments can help decrease air pollution and the greenhouse gases driving climate change. In addition to creating more active environments, investments in active transportation infrastructure (e.g., sidewalks, roads and transit) can help improve spatial equity—improving safety, accessibility, and mobility for all.
