Can a Lifestyle Intervention Increase Active Transportation in Women Aged 55-70 years? Secondary Outcomes From a Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial

In this study, the authors seek to test the effects of Everyday Activity Supports You (EASY), a novel lifestyle intervention aimed at increasing daily physical activity in older women (ages 55-70 years) through both use of public transportation and utilitarian walking. They employ a pilot randomized controlled trial method and use travel diaries and questionnaires to determine trip types and level of physical activity. Individuals participating in the EASY program reported more walking trips than the control group, and the authors concluded that the EASY intervention is feasible for implementation in a community-based setting for inactive older women.
