The PAPREN Transportation Work Group is a platform for community and collaboration among researchers and practitioners interested in research, evaluation and translation to practice at the intersection of health and transportation. Our unique approach emphasizes chronic disease prevention through active transportation, evaluation, and logistical support for projects. The Transportation Work Group will conduct rapid small-scale research and evaluation projects on topics such as impact of transportation system factors like funding, operations, decision making and infrastructure characteristics on physical activity behavior and health outcomes.
