DOT Releases New Online Tool to Help Promote  Health Through Transporation

The U.S. Department of Transportation and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention have recently developed a tool to provide easy access to data that practitioners can use to examine the health impacts of transportation systems. The Transportation and Health Tool (THT) provides data on a set of transportation and public health indicators that describe how the transportation environment affects safety, active transportation, air quality and connectivity to destinations. The tool allows you to compare states and metropolitan areas addressing key transportation and health issues. The easy-to-use online tool also provides access to resources that can provide information on the links between transportation and health. The THT identifies strategies to improve public health through transportation planning and policy. Additional information regarding the Transportation and Health tool can be found on DOT's website
