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.
The Transportation Equity Coalition will identify, advocate, and promote equitable policies and practices through inclusive cross-sector partnerships while addressing the systemic inequities that affect access to safe and efficient transportation.

Since early 2022, the coalition has been focused on rolling out a Transportation Equity Needs Assessment together with consultants, and a planning group comprised of diverse members of the community. Focus groups were conducted in September 2022 and a community survey was dissiminated during the month of April. Preliminary results are being analyzed and a final report is expected for later this year. Learn more
