A number of tools have been created based on TRC research that can be used by transportation professionals and policy-makers in sustainable and equitable transportation projects.
Transit Center Equity Dashboard
This interactive web dashboard illustrates how well transit systems in seven U.S. cities provide service to essential destinations, including jobs, medical care, grocery stores and more. The dashboard tracks service across communities and populations over time from February 2020 through the present, illuminating existing disparities and tracking progress toward equity. The dashboard includes interactive maps, informative charts, a fare calculation tool, and data downloads, allowing transit agencies and transit riders to identify and address critical service needs. The dashboard was funded by TransitCenter and was created by UVM TRC researchers, Dana Rowangould and Mitchell Robinson, along with researchers at the University of Texas Austin, and the University of Toronto.
