The Transport and Health Study Group (THSG) is an independent society of public health and transport practitioners and researchers committed to understanding and addressing the links between transport policies and health and promoting a healthy transport system.  We were founded in the late 1980s by Dr. Stephen Morton.

The  publication “Health on the Move” authored by the Transport & Health Study Group  was the first definitive account of the relationship between transport and health. THSG later contributed to “Road Transport and Health” by the British Medical Association.

Our recent e book Health on the Move 2 is a definitive scientific and policy account of transport and health.

We have links to the Journal of Transport and Health, the Professional Association for Transport and Health, the Partnership for Active Travel, Transport and Health  and the Transport Special Interest Group of the Faculty of Public Health.
