Description

Reason for Ranking

The transportation choices that communities and individuals make have important impacts on health through items such as active living, air quality, and traffic crashes. The choices for commuting to work can include walking, biking, taking public transit, carpooling, or individuals driving alone, the last of which is the most damaging to the health of communities. In most counties, driving alone is also the primary form of transportation to work.
