The Transportation Prescription: Bold New Ideas for Healthy, Equitable Transportation Reform in America
The Transportation Prescription: Bold New Ideas for Healthy, Equitable Transportation Reform in America , a report by PolicyLink and Prevention Institute and commissioned by the Convergence Partnership, is a guide to how healthy, equitable transportation policies can improve the quality of life for everyone, and in particular for vulnerable communities. The upcoming federal transportation bill authorization -an over $500 billion investment that will set transportation policy and funding in the United States for approximately the next six years –presents an enormous opportunity to improve health and promote equity through our transportation system.
