UTHealth researchers to measure impact of METRO on physical activity of Houston residents

TTI and UTHealth Join Forces on 5-Year Transportation and Health Study Granted by NIH
"For the first time, the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) will team up with the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston (UTHealth), for a new project funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The five-year project will look at how the Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County’s (METRO’s) light rail transit (LRT) line extensions affect the physical activity and travel behavior of adults in Houston. Researchers are particularly interested in understanding this effect in the low-income, ethnically diverse adult population residing along the new LRT lines."
