The Transportation Equity Coalition is currently made up of representatives from TCAT, Gadabout, the Center for Community Transportation (including Carshare and Bike Walk Tompkins), Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County’s Way2Go program, GO ITHACA, Tompkins County Department of Social Services, and the Ithaca-Tompkins County Transportation Council (ITCTC). Current members are listed in the sidebar.
We envision an equitable transportation sector that advances the quality of life for historically excluded people in Tompkins County and surrounding areas.
Through inclusive cross-sector partnerships, the Transportation Equity Coalition will identify, advocate, and promote equitable policies and practices while addressing the systemic inequities that affect access to safe and efficient transportation.
Are you passionate about advancing transportation equity in Tompkins County? Contact Norma at Way2Go by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss ways you can get involved with the Transportation Equity Coalition.
The Transportation Equity Coalition of Tompkins County (the Coalition) invites community members with diverse backgrounds and experiences to form a planning group that will roll out a Transportation Needs Assessment through the remainder of 2022.
The planning group will work together with members of the Coalition and the evaluator Claire Stoscheck of Golden Aspen Consulting, LLC (Ithaca, NY) to create and give input on focus group and survey questions, ways to engage the community, and to help make meaning of the findings. Your input is valuable to creating a meaningful way to engage and hear from unheard voices throughout the community and assist in giving context to the information gathered.
There are currently 10 spots available in the planning group open to people of all backgrounds and abilities. A stipend is available to help honor the time of applicants who identify as and have connections with marginalized communities and communities of color.
