Equity & Accessibility

Despite the growing variety of transportation options available in cities, many residents find themselves limited in their choices due to physical accessibility limitations, safety concerns, or other impediments to safe and efficient travel, restricting their ability to move freely about their cities. Transportation accessibility remains a problem for certain groups of travelers who are often underrepresented or overlooked in transportation policy development and research. 

Through this initiative, the Center aims to shed light on the specific difficulties some travelers face in cities, how these challenges impact their lives, and what cities and companies can do to make urban transportation safer and more accessible for everyone.
