SAT-B09 - The Equity, and Inequity, of Complete Streets

Saturday, October 21
2:30 PM - 4:00 PM


A host of evidence suggests our transportation system is inherently inequitable. Nationwide, Complete Streets efforts have sought to address those inequities by providing greater transportation choices. This session will explore leading national, statewide and local efforts to improve access to equitable transportation options in urban, suburban and rural contexts.
