Safe, active, and accessible ways of getting around.
Make over 50% of trips by foot, bicycle, and public transit.
Active transportation allows people to make exercise part of their daily routine by walking, wheeling, cycling, rolling, and riding public transit.
People are unlikely to walk or cycle if it feels unpleasant or unsafe, or if distances make it impractical compared to driving. By making these modes safe, convenient, accessible, comfortable and delightful, we can positively affect the health and well being of citizens of all ages.
