What makes transit inclusive?
“Walkable neighborhoods can thrive in the absence of transit, but walkable cities rely on it utterly.” - Jeff Speck, Walkable City
Public transit makes cities more walkable. Walking gets people around a neighborhood, but to travel to other neighborhoods, they need to use public transit. It is especially necessary for people who are in poverty, have disabilities, are elderly or young, and those who cannot drive. Public transit opens the city up to its residents. It accentuates the benefits of walkability.
This self-survey tool helps you understand whether a public transit system is healthy and helpful for babies, toddlers, and their caregivers. When a transit system includes the most vulnerable people in a city, it will also be effective, practical, and healthy for everyone else.
