Transportation is a critical link to opportunity, connecting people to jobs, schools, affordable housing, health care, grocery stores, and more. For many Americans, mobility can make all the difference in their ability to meet basic needs, participate fully in community life, and connect and contribute to our national economy.
This is why transportation investments are required to meet the needs of low-income people, communities of color, and people with disabilities. Modern, well-funded transportation systems can spur economic growth and tap into human potential. Achieving equity in transportation policy will bring about fundamental improvements in communities across the country.
