FR1.45.05 Sweat (In)Equity?: Alternative Transportation and Inequality in US Cities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Cycling and walking have long been viewed as transportation modes which encourage healthier, safer and more equitable urban environments. As low-cost transportation modes, cycling and walking are also frequently viewed as a mobility choice facilitating poverty alleviation. While bike-sharing programs, complete streets initiatives, and planning interventions for bicycling and walking in general are on the rise in the United States, the links between these investments and transportation inequality are relatively under-studied. This panel will highlight issues of inequality, access, and equity by responding to the following questions: How do race, class and gender influence perceptions of alternative transportation modes? How can planning practice better appreciate or even leverage differences in how communities view and participate in cycling and walking?
