Highway Robbery: Transportation Racism and New Routes to Equity

Overview

"There" might be work, the supermarket, school, or the doctor's office. The answer often involves a complicated maze of transfers and timetables. Substandard urban bus service, massive highway projects, and exclusive suburban train systems have left many people of color and poor people stranded -- literally cut-off from economic and social opportunities.

Overview

"There" might be work, the supermarket, school, or the doctor's office. The answer often involves a complicated maze of transfers and timetables. Substandard urban bus service, massive highway projects, and exclusive suburban train systems have left many people of color and poor people stranded -- literally cut-off from economic and social opportunities. Highway Robbery illustrates the contributions of transportation policy, and transportation tax dollars, to racial and economic inequality. The authors combine academic research and grassroots perspectives to link national inequalities in transportation to larger economic, health, environmental, and quality of life concerns. Defining transportation equity as a critical civil rights issue, this groundbreaking collection details progressive transit activists' efforts to tip the scales of transportation justice.
