CNU Project for Transportation Reform Annual Summit 2014

For decades, U.S. transportation policy gave priority to automobile movement over the social and economic needs of the people living along our streets. Highways and wide arterials divided pre-existing neighborhoods, degraded the public realm, and created travel spaces unsafe for pedestrians and bicyclists. This year’s Congress for New Urbanism’s Project for Transportation Reform summit, Equity + Transportation, focused on the interaction between equity and transportation and how we can redefine transportation standards to support safe, vibrant, and equitable streets.

Dukakis Center’s Stephanie Pollack presented at the Employment Accessibility plenary session, focused on the latest research and thinking on accessibility, job access, shared mobility, and preferred transportation modes. Speakers discussed current socio-cultural shifts in how people are getting to work and began to identify ways to interpret these current shifts and enhance accessibility in places where accessibility is limited.
