My Health My Community Survey: transportation and health

The My Health My Community survey gathered health and wellness data from 33,000 Lower Mainland and Coastal community adult residents in 2013-2014. The responses are being examined to look at the association between mode of commuting and health. The results of the survey will help My Health My Community to achieve their mission to improve the health and well-being of the communities they serve.

The survey findings are summarized in the report and associated infographics available for download here.

Evidence shows that well-planned and accessible transportation systems influence our health by increasing our physical activity, improving air quality and reducing vehicle injuries, leading to better physical and mental health.
