Mobility Equity Symposium

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 Initiative will be holding a Mobility Equity Symposium in June 2021 to help drive the dialogue around this and other key mobility equity issues and to establish a shared research agenda.
