​​​​​​​Did you know that people who live in cities with good public transportation are healthier than those who don't? It largely has to do with fitness.

U.S. Center for Disease Control recommends that adults average at least 22 daily minutes of moderate physical activity, such as brisk walking, to stay fit and healthy. Although less than half of American adults achieve this target, most public transportation passengers do exercise the recommended amount while walking to and from transit stations and stops.

In suburban areas like Lee County, many people may live too far from a bus stop to make walking practical. We recommend combining your bus commute with bicycling to speed your trip and give you two types of exercise. All LeeTran buses have bike racks, and there are bike racks at transit ​stations and most bus shelters.
