Transportation, Land Use, and Community Design – STRATEGY 1

Increase accountability of project planning and selection to ensure infrastructure supporting active transportation and other forms of physical activity.


  • Support transportation agencies and planning organizations to establish performance measures for transportation plans that are specific to physical activity and health. This should include systematic measurement of all trips, including commute, school, and other trips as well as standardized reporting and recording of crash and injury data, for all travel modes including pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit riders.
  • Support annual reporting by all schools of their transportation mode split.
  • Support and integrate the use of health impact assessments in planning to inform activity-friendly design and development.
  • Support increased accountability in planning to address equity and disparity issues, especially for vulnerable communities and vulnerable populations.
