Healthy Transportation Policies


ASTHO's Health in All Policies factsheets were developed using multiple resources from credible sources that catalogue policies that link health and policies. The healthy policy concepts included in the document provide some of these high-level, health promoting strategies. For each concept, you will also find a summary of specific policies and resources that have shown to be health-promoting when they were implemented in various jurisdictions. These policy concepts are meant to serve as a starting point for conversations between health agencies and their transportation and community design counterparts.
