Series Finale: Strategies to Overcome Transportation Barriers for Rent Burdened Residents
Greenhouse gas emissions from transportation account for about 28 percent of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. As we work together to address the profound climate crisis, the U.S. DOT Volpe Center’s new speaker series, Innovation for a Sustainable, Equitable Transportation System, will explore how to transition to a low-/no-carbon transportation system—one that enables disadvantaged communities to gain access to mobility, jobs, and economic opportunity.
Susan Shaheen, PhD, co-director, Transportation Sustainability Research Center of the Institute of Transportation Studies at the University of California, Berkley, will present her talk “Strategies to Overcome Transportation Barriers for Rent Burdened Residents” as part of the U.S. DOT Volpe Center’s 2021 thought leadership series, Innovation for a Sustainable, Equitable Transportation System, on Thursday, September 23, 2021, at 12 p.m. (ET).
