The University of Texas, El Paso (UTEP) will conduct an HIA focused on public transportation. The HIA will inform the choice of a route for a proposed public transportation system between Las Cruces, New Mexico, and rural towns in southern areas of the state. Public transportation has been linked to positive health outcomes as a result of increased access to health care, opportunities for physical activity, and decreased stress.
