It has followed that the result improved probability of past research and indicate the relationship between travel behavior, transport-environment and “a risk of decease” such as cardiac insufficiency. Moreover it was suggested that transportenvironment divided by the unit that was more detailed than past study have relevance to the rate of various diseases treatment accepter. In line with this, the transport infrastructure in a more detailed area in the city could have an influence on the health. This study makes a contribution to developing and expanding mobility management measures can effectively change travel behavior and encourage a mode shift from private cars to public transit.
