Good point Marc!
We worked on a report with TransForm for the California Department of Public Health that
does try to address those important issues.
"Creating Healthy Regional Transportation Plans: A Primer for California's Public
Health Community on Regional Transportation Plans and Sustainable Communities
Its mostly focused on California but is hopefully interesting for others to read as well.
Feel free to contact me or Stuart Cohen from TransForm (cc-ed above) directly if you have

It is fascinating and dismaying to me that a report like this can be written, with no
mention whatsoever of equity, environmental justice, disadvantaged people, discrimination,
health disparities, etc.

Subject: [H+T--Friends] New report on public health and transportation planning
A new report from the National Association of Regional Councils (NARC) might be of
interest to you and your networks:
NARC Report Released, Integrating Public Health and Transportation Planning: Perspectives
for MPOs and COGs:
NARC recently released a summary report of efforts made by metropolitan planning
organizations (MPOs) to integrate public health factors and considerations into their
transportation plans. Additionally, the report offers options through which an MPO can
work with its Council of Government (COG) to integrate non-transportation planning
activities into the transportation and public health discussion.
