March 1, 2024 – Transport poverty affects over one million people in Canada, restricting their access to essential opportunities due to insufficient, unsafe, or costly transportation choices. Cities are recognizing the injustices embedded in the planning, design, and delivery of transportation, and mobilizing around the need for change. With equity on governments’ policy agendas and new investments in active transportation and transit, there is an opportunity to build fairer, more inclusive transportation systems. What can transportation practitioners and urban planners do on the ground to turn these commitments into realities?

Join researcher Meghan Winters from INTerventions, Equity, Research, and Action in Cities Team (INTERACT), and city builders Lisa Leblanc (City of New Westminster), Deborah Lightman RPP (City of Ottawa), and Christian Lee (City of Edmonton) as they explore the findings from INTERACT’s new report, Practices and Inspiration for Sustainable Transportation Equity: Case Studies from Canadian Cities. Developed in collaboration with LevelUp Planning and transportation and equity professionals from across Canada, this report shares practical guidance on ways cities can embed equity in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of transportation interventions.
