Research for the AASHTO Committee on Environment and Sustainability. Task 105. A Guidebook for Communications between Transportation and Public Health Communities

Public health advocates are increasingly interested in the transportation sector. To address this emerging issue, the Center for Environmental Excellence by AASHTO held a Transportation and Public Health Peer Exchange in December 2014. Peer exchange participants identified the fundamental lack of understanding between public health and transportation communities as a barrier to communications and understanding. Research is needed to produce a guidebook for transportation professionals that will facilitate successful communication and cross-sector partnerships between transportation and public health communities. The purpose of this study is to produce a user-friendly guidebook for state and local transportation professionals, identifying the challenges and best practices for successful communication and collaboration between transportation and public health professionals.
