Practical Measures for Advancing Public Transit Equity and Access

In partnership with the Federal Transit Administration, researchers at the University of Texas at Austin, Arizona State University, and Dunbar Transportation Consulting, LLC, identified a set of replicable measures that public transportation providers and their partners can use to advance equity for those who have been historically underserved, marginalized, and adversely affected by persistent poverty and/or inequality. These include practical strategies such as advisory committees and intergovernmental partnerships as well as analytical techniques that quantify how public transit links people to opportunities.
