This "Transportation and Public Health" booklet discusses the cost that the dominant pattern of autocentric communities in the U.S. is taking on people’s health and how new communities and developments can be designed, and older communities retrofit, to support a healthier lifestyle. It looks at the steps that Lancaster County is taking to promote healthy communities that offer residents and visitors a range of mobility options.

Topics include auto dependence and rising public health costs, designing better communities and providing infrastructure to support alternative modes of transportation, and tools used in Lancaster County communities (smart growth transportation program, mixed use developments and TODs, traffic calming, revised zoning codes, infrastructure for non-motorized travel, transit and passenger rail.)
