Use of active transportation can increase physical activity by integrating activity into daily routines. Examples of active transportation are biking or walking to a destination, such as work or school, rather than driving. Active transportation often incorporates use of a public transit. Choices for active transportation can be facilitated at the school, worksite or community level. Policies can encourage active transport by affecting the physical and social environment.
