Public sector transportation agencies are responsible for providing equitable access to safe, efficient transportation facilities and services for all people within their service area, with the intended outcome of enabling all people to conduct the essential economic and social interactions they need in order to survive, thrive and prosper.  Yet achieving these outcomes involves many factors beyond the agency's control, from urban gentrification that pushes low-income families out to transit-inaccessible suburbs to changing demographic patterns in "majority-minority" communities. In this session, participants will glean insights from cutting-edge research and practitioner experience on the dynamics of equitable transportation planning.
