Transit–it’s good for you!

I’m sure you know that I believe in transit for a variety of reasons–cheap, fun, relaxing, clean(er), etc.  And healthy!  Read this report from the American Public Health Association if you don’t believe me. #snappatx

“The report points out that transportation policies can also have a transformative effect. Increasing sustainable transportation options and improving community transportation designs could significantly improve public health by introducing walking, bicycling and transit use as convenient and cost-effective ways to integrate more physical activity into the daily habits of all transportation users. APHA supports policy that would increase access to safe sidewalks, streets and playgrounds, health services and jobs for all Americans no matter what area of the country.
