Building a more sustainable and equitable transportation system

Stephanie Pollack addressed the Regional Transportation Advisory Council to the Boston Region Metropolitan Planning Organization on February 12, stimulating a discussion about “Building a Sustainable and Equitable Transportation System.”  The Advisory Council is an independent group charged with providing public input on transportation planning to the Boston Region MPO which uses its monthly meetings to provide a forum for broad-based and robust discussions of transportation issues and as a major avenue for public participation in the MPO’s planning process.

The presentation first outlined the importance of the key concepts of sustainability, equity and accessibility in regional transportation planning and then proposed ten potential directions that future transportation investment could take that would make the region’s system more sustainable and equitable.
