WHAT IS EQUITY ANYWAY?

The definition for equity used by Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA) for decades has been increased funding for transit for smaller communities and higher levels of transit availability for low-income families, seniors and persons with disabilities. This article examines issues such as equity and funding formulas; transit funding equity; and highway funding equity. Additional arguments looked at include urban vs. rural interests, bus transit vs. rail transit, competing federal/state/local roles in decision making, and new transit projects vs. improvement/upkeep of existing projects.
