Book Talk: Inclusive Transportation – A Manifesto for Repairing Divided Communities

Thursday May 16

6:00 PM  –  7:00 PM

Public transportation is considered a social equalizer that provides access to jobs, education, resources, and culture. And, even well-intentioned transit plans can negatively impact underserved communities and deepen socioeconomic divides. Veronica Davis, author of Inclusive Transportation: A Manifesto for Repairing Divided Communities, argues that the difference depends on how cities and transportation leaders conceptualize the problems and center people in planning the solutions. 

In this virtual program, Davis will highlight inequities in transportation and discuss how refocusing priorities and training, reworking the data, and changing conceptions of equity can improve transit systems.
