Association of commuting mode with dyslipidemia and its components after accounting for air pollution in the working population of Beijing, China
TLDR
Walking, cycling and bus-riding commuting can reduce the risk for dyslipidemia and some of its components, and education on the prevention of dys Lipidemia should be emphasized among higher-risk people who usually commute by car or taxi.
Does Environmental Walkability Matter? The Role of Walkable Environment in Active Commuting
TLDR
Policy recommendations in urban planning and design, transport engineering, and environmental planning are provided because the association between walkability and active commuting in Seoul, Korea was significantly correlated with the odds of active commuting.

Physical Activity through Sustainable Transport Approaches (PASTA): a study protocol for a multicentre project
TLDR
PASTA generates empirical findings to improve health impact assessment (HIA) of AM, for example, with estimates of crash risks, factors on AM-PA substitution and carbon emissions savings from mode shifts, which will inform WHO's online Health Economic Assessment Tool on the health benefits from cycling and/or walking.
Spatial heterogeneity in repeated measures of perceived stress among car commuters in Scania, Sweden
TLDR
The relationship between commuting mode and time and stress is variable in place and time, and local differences in stress among participants were only partly explained by sociodemographic characteristics.
The Relationships Between Active Transport to Work or School and Cardiovascular Health or Body Weight
TLDR
The review found that active transport to work or school was significantly associated with improved cardiovascular health and lower body weight, however, the strength of the evidence varied from weak (mental health and cancer), moderate (body weight), to strong (cardiovascular health).
Association between active commuting and incident cardiovascular disease, cancer, and mortality: prospective cohort study
TLDR
Walking commuting was associated with a lower risk of CVD, cancer, and all cause mortality independent of major measured confounding factors and Initiatives to encourage and support active commuting could reduce risk of death and the burden of important chronic conditions.
