Taking Public Transportation May Help Keep You Slim

According to a recent study funded in part by the U.S. National Institutes of Environmental Health Science and published in the August issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, taking public transportation may help keep you slim.

Although the study performed was on Light Rail Transit systems, the same principle can apply to walking to the ECO bus stops scattered along Hwy 6 through the valley.  Offering public transportation, according to the article, can create more opportunities for people to engage in physical activity.
