White Paper: Transportation Equity

Date: March 22, 2024 PDF: 1.8 MB

Ensuring all consumers in all communities can benefit from the transportation energy transition is essential. No person should be left behind with less efficient, higher polluting transportation options simply because of where they live. The Transportation Energy Institute is committed to finding solutions that are accessible to underserved communities, including lower income, rural and tribal communities.

A first step to achieving that objective is to understand how policies are designed to serve these communities. This whitepaper first describes what transportation equity is and how states/federal government have approached equity in transportation planning. It then discusses equity in the context of the Administration’s Justice40 activities, and how it has been considered in the rollout of the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program. The whitepaper concludes with suggested questions and gaps that could be the subject for further research.
