Public Health Benefits of Active Transportation

Active transportation creates important opportunities for routine physical activity. Effective collaboration between public health and active transportation can strengthen projects with better results for all   residents, including children, senior citizens, people with disabilities, and low-income families. By understanding the impact of different types of interventions on the behavior of drivers and pedestrians, transportation professionals can create and construct designs that meet community goals.  

This webinar looks at case studies in Charlotte, N.C. and Columbia, Missouri, where changes to the streetscape were studied for their effects on physical activity and social interactions. The interventions include replacing a pedestrian bridge with an at-grade, signalized crossing; and modifying the streetscape and street profile with landscaping, narrower driving lanes and additional bike lanes. Presenters also suggest techniques for breaking down professional silos and engaging transportation, public health and research professionals in a collaborative study and design process.

Presenters:
Ian Thomas, PhD, Board of Directors, America Walks
Dwane Jones, PhD, Director of the Center for Sustainable Development, University of the District of Columbia
