Transportation expands access to opportunities, from jobs, to housing, to education. But not all transportation is created equally, and not all modes are equally accessible or equally used by diverse populations. The shared, electric, connected, and autonomous transportation future may help expand transportation choices and access to opportunities. However, if equity issues are not proactively considered and addressed, it may exacerbate existing inequality. This session will delve deeper into the question of how shared, electric, connected, and autonomous transportation may serve or impact diverse communities, what projects across the nation are currently dealing with these issues, and what tools agencies and practitioners can use to harness new technologies to benefit all. Equity will be explored through the lenses of gender, socioeconomics, age and ability, and geography (urban v. rural).
