Mobility Equity Resources
Mobility equity is a framework that prioritizes the mobility needs of low-income people of color and addresses the historical neglect their communities experienced from past and current transportation decisions and practices. 1 Mobility equity increases access to high quality mobility options, reduces air pollution, and enhances economic opportunities in low-income communities of color. Mobility equity is realized when social benefits are distributed fairly and when marginalized communities influence decisions in a way that addresses their needs and concerns. A few mobility equity resources are listed below for consideration as clean mobility projects are developed.
