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.

With this in mind, the Convergence Partnership has commissioned a new report by PolicyLink and Prevention Institute entitled The Transportation Prescription: Bold New Ideas for Healthy, Equitable Transportation Reform in America . It's a guide to how healthy, equitable transportation policies can improve the quality of life for everyone, and in particular for vulnerable communities.
This report presents a collection of policies and programs that can improve health and transportation in underserved communities while simultaneously creating economic opportunities.
