Closing the Equity Gap in Transportation: A Conversation with DelDOT Secretary Jennifer Cohan

12:00 PM - 01:30 PM Eastern Standard Time

Charlie Palmer Steak | Alcove Room | 101 Constitution Avenue Northwest Washington, DC 20001

 

Description:

“Mobility on demand” and “mobility as a service” transportation models are exploding! While these new models afford us endless opportunities, they also present challenges. One of the biggest challenges is the growing equity gap. Women, persons with disabilities, minorities, and lower-income individuals have less-than-equal access to many of these emerging "mobility on demand" services. And even where access exists, there often is a disconnect between what “mobility on demand” provides and what women and others require from these services to meet their transportation needs.

Join WTS-DC and ITS America for a discussion with Delaware DOT Secretary Jennifer Cohan about the opportunities and challenges of “mobility on demand” transportation models and how we can work toward uniting communities and improving quality of life via “mobility as a right.”

A plated lunch will be provided.
