Connecting Routes + Destinations
Activity-Friendly Routes and Everyday Destinations
The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends built environment approaches that combine one or more interventions to improve transportation systems (activity-friendly routes) with one or more land use and community design interventions (everyday destinations) to increase physical activity. Combined approaches that connect activity-friendly routes to everyday destinations make it safe and convenient for people of all abilities to walk, run, bike, skate, or use wheelchairs.
State and local health departments, public health professionals, and community organizations working on ways to increase physical activity can use the Real-World Examples, Implementation Resource Guide, and Visual Guide to guide their implementation process as they aim to build more activity-friendly communities.
