Reliable transportation is an indispensable vital condition that we all depend on for our health and well-being. Everyone needs transportation to move consistently and safely between the many places we must be – home, work, school, stores and more. In the United States, personal vehicles are the predominant transportation mode, yet they produce many negative externalities from pollution to traffic to sprawl. Many people can‚Äôt or don‚Äôt drive, and rely on public transit and other means to get around. Transportation options have a strong influence on access to jobs and social mobility. Transportation also plays a role in our activity levels, with active transportation – walking, biking and transit use – helping us to incorporate physical activity into our day-to-day lives.
