This paper presents ways to assess and illustrate socioeconomic and environmental factors that define project settings in the context of transportation infrastructure and associated communities. It gives particular reference to urban neighborhoods and to the costs and benefits of public transit inner city constituents. It emphasizes compliance with issues of Environmental Justice (EJ) as reflected in the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21). Its framework consists of resource management consistent with public transit. Its objective is to protect and sustain community functions and livability, and it discusses the need to consider public health and the ultimate incorporation of epidemiology in assessment of EJ issues.
