ITS scholars approach much of their research through the lens of transportation equity, studying how travel behavior, infrastructure development, and the environmental impacts of transportation impact low-income residents and communities of color. The Access to Opportunities program, a partnership with the UCLA Lewis Center for Regional Policy Studies, examines how transportation connects — or disconnects — people from high-quality housing, stable jobs, and other paths out of poverty.
