Since the mid 1980s, the prevalence of obesity among children in the United States increased dramatically. Researchers have recently started examining the degree to which community-level factors... More > influence children’s physical activity, and in particular, active transportation to and from school. “Walkability” factors such as the density of intersections, lack of dead ends, and tree cover near schools have been found to be positive predictors of children walking to school. The study examined two key research questions. First, we examinee the contributions of walkability measures and perceived neighborhood safety on active transportation among an ethnically diverse group of low income children. Second, we investigatee the relationship between children’s active transportation and overall physical activity and obesity.

Suburban multifamily housing is a commonly overlooked example of density within walking distance of commercial developments. This report focuses on demographics, attitudes, and perceptions related to... More > mode choice at 14 sites in Eugene, Oregon. Our study shows that site design and connectivity are significant predictors of mode choice. 40% of trips to local commercial areas from more-connected developments are by foot or bike, nearly twice the rate from less-connected developments. Active transportation has environmental benefits of reduced gas consumption and green house gas emissions, health benefits of increased exercise, and social benefits of increased independence for youth and the elderly. Quantifying the degree to which site design, and specifically connectivity, makes a difference in residents’ mode choice is a first step to increasing the amount of active transportation. This research provides planners and designers a basis for reevaluating suburban multifamily site design and zoning codes.< Less
