MOBILITY EQUITY SERIES

For communities both within and outside of the urban core, transportation plans and investments have often reinforced unequal land-use patterns and resulted in unequal access to economic and social opportunities. The MIT Mobility Equity Symposium and the Mobility Equity Series aim to help drive the dialogue around key mobility equity issues and to establish a shared research agenda.
