Abstract

Transport and health in cities globally are linked in multiple ways. Although mobility is fundamental for human wellbeing, there are also huge adverse impacts related to movement in cities, with road injuries being one of the top ten causes of death worldwide. Between encouraging positive mental wellbeing and being a leading cause of death there are a plethora of health impacts related to transport in urban areas. This chapter will provide an overview of the positive and negative pathways between transport and health, drawing on examples from a range of cities globally.
