    It seems like a collaboration between public health efforts and transportation planning would yield results. Transportation solutions are very much a “system” as Oboi points out, and the system, despite good intentions, has serious problems.

    Public health seems better equipped to include different views and participants. A more comprehensive solution like access to transportation to jobs improves mental health seems like a possibility to improve how we allocate Transpo dollars, not based upon pork.
