NEW COOPERATIVE RESEARCH PROGRAMS REPORT: Practical Approaches for Involving Traditionally Underserved Populations in Transportation Decision Making

Transportation decision making should recognize, respond to, and address the unique needs, cultural perspectives, and financial limitations of different socioeconomic groups. A comprehensive and inclusive approach is needed for developing an understanding of the value systems and viewpoints of these groups. The National Cooperative Highway Research Program has published a toolkit of practical approaches for agencies and practitioners to foster the meaningful involvement of traditionally underserved populations—particularly minority, low-income, limited-English-proficiency, and low-literacy groups—in transportation decision making. Effective practices, tools, techniques, and data sources are presented.
