Affordable Mobility: Access to Jobs and Opportunities

Transportation does more than move a person from one place to another—it provides access to opportunities and resources, connections to community, and the ability to live a healthy, fulfilled life. Yet, many times, the transportation options that exist are out of reach for those with more limited means.

In this session, hear from cities that are expanding access to transportation for people with limited incomes: from an innovative electric car share program, to the country’s first combined bike and bus pass, to state-of-the-art payment systems that allow passengers to always pay the lowest possible fare in all situations. Beyond policy, this session will look at how programs are marketed and operationalized for the greatest buy-in and impact.
