Transportation, Land Use, and Community Design

STRATEGY 5

Transportation and public health agencies should implement initiatives to encourage, reward, and require more walking, bicycling, and transit use for routine transportation. (TLC-5)

TACTICS:

  • Provide requirements and incentives for employers and municipalities to implement comprehensive transportation demand management programs to encourage increased active commuting (walk, bike, transit). (TLC-5.1)
  • Develop and disseminate market-based tools to encourage active transportation. (TLC-5.2)
  • Support community bicycle sharing programs. (TLC-5.3)
  • Promote and expand existing Bicycle-Friendly and Walk-Friendly Community, Campus, and Business award programs. (TLC-5.4)
  • Focus on developing and disseminating the policy elements of Safe Routes to School programs for more sustained impact. (TLC-5.5)
  • Institutionalize professional education and certification programs’ inclusion of best practices and evolving research in active transportation design and policies, for engineers, planners, architects, landscape architects, public health, public policy, and related professions. (TLC-5.6)
  • Implement comprehensive transportation safety programs using best practices to minimize pedestrian and bicycle collisions, injuries, and fatalities. (TLC-5.7)
  • Use events, short-term interventions, and demonstration and pilot projects to create knowledge of and demand for permanent infrastructure and policy improvements for walking, cycling, and transit. (TLC-5.8)
  • Adjust physical activity outreach, promotion, and messages appropriately for various target audiences; do not focus solely on “exercise” promotion. (TLC-5.9)
