Abstract
Encouraging active travel has many benefits, but also perhaps some associated risks, and certainly much uncertainty still in how it works and how to estimate its impacts. The TAPAS programme was developed to tackle in a comprehensive way the multiple questions surrounding active travel, from its promotion to its overall impacts. This presentation will provide a brief overview of the health impact assessments developed in TAPAS, and cover some key results from the travel survey conducted in Barcelona and from the epidemiologic analysis on the combination of air pollution exposure and physical activity.
