The Healthy Transportation Compact kick-off meeting will be held tomorrow, Wednesday, January 20th from 3-5pm, Massachusetts Transportation Building, 10 Park Plaza, Boston, 3rd Floor Conference Room #2.

The Healthy Transportation Compact is a key requirement of the transportation reform law. The goals include expanding mobility, improving public health, supporting a cleaner environment, and creating stronger communities.

The MassDOT transportation vision includes a strong commitment to pedestrian and bicycle access. Walking and bicycling move people out of single-occupant vehicles, reduce traffic congestion, and promote healthy lifestyles and a cleaner environment.

MassDOT will strengthen this commitment through better coordination of bicycle and pedestrian projects, investments in pedestrian and bicycle safety, and expanding the pedestrian and bicycle facilities network statewide.  Partnerships are being formed with advocates and public health professionals. 

Learn more about that commitment and the Healthy Compact at the MassDOT Information Center on the web here.
