This paper reviews the connections between transportation, air quality, health, road safety, and economic and social well-being. It also examines best practices and key considerations for equitable
transportation system design. A companion paper, “Investing in Climate-Smart Transportation: An Action Guide for America Is All In Members,” offers specific strategies and case studies for U.S. non- federal actors seeking to realize these benefits for their communities. States, tribes, cities, towns, universities, businesses, and civil society actors can implement these tactics and coordinate action to create positive feedback loops.
