Great Source for Transportation and Sustainability Information


Transportation for Pennsylvania, which I mentioned in a previous post,  launched a blog earlier this month that will serve as a platform for up to date information on the expected – transportation infrastructure in Pennsylvania – and also the unexpected – public health, social inequality, and climate change, among others.

The Transportation for Pennsylvania coalition is composed of organizations with varying interests, but a common goal: a more sustainable Pennsylvania. Few topics can solidly bond such a plethora of issues as well as transportation. For example, walkable communities often experience lower obesity rates and better public health, while the amount of cars on the road directly affects carbon emissions, a major climate concern. The Transportation for Pennsylvania blog highlights these connections, making it one of the most comprehensive forums for policy discussion.

Make sure to visit the T4PA blog and subscribe to their RSS feed to receive statewide transportation information.
