Road Signs Pedcast

Road Signs Pedcast

Episode 1: The Road Diet

Does your neighborhood have safe sidewalks, crosswalks, and bike lanes? Ever wonder how street design can improve health? Curious how transportation systems can make places not only more connected, but also more equitable? The ChangeLab Solutions' pedcast, Road Signs, is designed for public health practitioners and advocates interested in creating safe and active streets. Each episode introduces one transportation tool that promotes community health and well-being. 

The pedcast is intended to accompany you on a walk around your neighborhood or office. Plug in your headphones, look both ways, and get moving! In this first episode, learn about an approach to making existing streets safer—a “road diet”—with a story from Oakland, California.
