Historically, certain individuals and communities, including those from minority, low-income, and limited English proficiency populations, have not benefited equitably from transportation investments and programs. Understanding the impacts of transportation investments on these individuals and communities and taking steps to address inequities are critical functions of transportation agencies. TRB will cohost a webinar with COMTO on Thursday, October 22, 2020 from 2:00 to 3:30 pm Eastern that will help transportation planners develop and implement
equity analyses that address the unique contexts of their communities. The interactive presentation lays out a five-step framework for conducting equity analyses for regional transportation plans and programs, illustrated by case studies.
