Portland to Lake Oswego Transit Project

Oregon Public Health Institute (OPHI), in collaboration with the local transportation planning agency, conducted a health impact assessment (HIA) of transit alternatives for a new proposed public transit corridor in Portland, Oregon. Transit alternatives included light rail or street car, enhanced bus service, or no transportation improvements. The HIA was done in conjunction with an environmental impact statement (EIS). The HIA focused on how the proposed project would affect physical activity levels; air quality; access to services that support health, such as healthy foods, employment, and social services; and traffic injuries.
