Transportation Equity Coalition

Who is the Transportation Coalition?

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.

Vision

We envision an equitable transportation sector that advances the quality of life for historically excluded people in Tompkins County and surrounding areas.

Mission

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.

Transportation Equity Needs Assessment Planning Group

The Transportation Equity Coalition of Tompkins County (the Coalition) invited community members with diverse backgrounds and experiences to form a planning group to roll out a Transportation Needs Assessment through the remainder of 2022.

The planning group works 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. Their input and involvement 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.
