What are some elements that will make a sustainable transportation infrastructure?

    In order to make a region’s transportation infrastructure sustainable, several factors must be ensured. First, access: mixed-use development and walkable neighborhoods, for example, where people can walk to get goods and services rather than driving to them from dense residential developments. Second, equity: making sure different parts of town have equal access to good mass transit, not just the ritzy parts of town. Third, health: a community less dependent on cars will likely be healthier–use this as a selling point. Integrate the transportation planning of cities in the same region, take land/resource use and pollution into consideration. Compact urban development reduces habitat loss and loss of farmland, but creates its own challenges. All in all, mass transit that is accessible and takes people where they need to go is far more sustainable than highway infrastructure.
