In rural areas, cost-effective transit service is challenging due to greater travel distances, lower population densities, and longer travel times than in cities. UC Davis partnered with the eight San Joaquin Valley Metropolitan Planning Organizations to identify and support development of three innovative mobility pilot concepts for the region.
This research will address policy-relevant questions by investigating cost-efficient ways to implement a RUC, evaluating the equity impacts of RUC, and quantifying factors that influence household’s PEV adoption decisions.
Day One: Keynote Talk by critical mobilities scholar Mimi Sheller, author of Mobility Justice: The Politics of Movement in an Age of Extremes. Day Two: Workshop - Participants will collaborate at a closed workshop to produce an interdisciplinary mobility justice research agenda that draws on bike equity and racial justice.
This policy brief aims to answer the following questions: what is the best way to measure individuals’ long-distance travel in order to inform planning and policy, and what factors are associated with long-distance travel and do they suggest inequitable access to intercity and more distant destinations?
This project measures sidewalk, curb ramp, and curb cut quality data to evaluate pedestrian infrastructure quality. The project considers accessible, active travel for people with physical disabilities.
This study examines climate action plans (CAPs) released by jurisdictions in California, and develops a framework to assess their inclusion, which could also be used to guide future CAP development, and develops a set of guiding questions to promote the inclusion of equity themes in climate action planning and implementation.
