Researchers’ methods of measuring transportation equity might be leaving people out
A new study from Oregon State University found that existing methods of measuring transit equity – the results of which often inform transit planning – might be too simplistic. The desire to quantify analysis of transit equity make acting on results difficult because there isn’t enough information, researchers Philip Carleton and J. David Porter argue.
