This webpage discusses the transportation system's negative health effects that disproportionately affect vulnerable members of the community, including low-income residents, minorities, children, persons with disabilities, and older adults. It includes strategies that transportation agencies can take to increase active transportation, improve safety, improve air quality, and improve connectivity to improve equity if they are targeted in low-income and minority communities.
