At CoMotion LA ’19, experts like LA Metro’s Elba Higueros and Calgary’s Mayor Naheed Nenshi shared their insights on Inclusive Transportation. Check out all the panels below:
Inclusive and equitable transport systems can foster equitable cities. Our transportation systems help us access resources such as education, employment, and healthcare. In turn, our transit options must be safe, affordable, and easy to use for all passengers. They require broad coverage, accessibility, and fair pricing in order to unlock and sustain real value for a city and its diversity of residents. How can policies like congestion pricing, transit line expansion, access for people with reduced mobility, and income driven fares adapt our systems to better serve all residents, particularly those that have been historically underserved?

As the ways we move throughout our cities evolve, are our solutions driven by style, substance, or some combination of the both?
– Naheed Nenshi, Mayor, City of Calgary
