Everyone needs to get from point A to point B. But some methods of travel can be healthier for communities, families, and individuals than others.
Historically, US transportation systems have prioritized car travel at the expense of other ways to get around. Although driving is certainly necessary in some instances, cars emit harmful pollution, endanger people who are walking or bicycling, discourage physical activity, require a lot of space for roads and parking, and are expensive to own and operate. Not only do other modes of transportation contribute to better physical, mental, and social health outcomes, but they can also make access to education and job opportunities more equitable and improve community prosperity.
