Assessing the Mobility Needs of Rural and Underserved Communities in California

June 29, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Households in small and rural communities are often automobile dependent, and those with low incomes or who do not own a car have limited transportation options for accessing basic services that improve lives and livelihoods, including jobs, health care, healthy food, and more. In this webinar, researchers from the National Center for Sustainable Transportation will highlight research pertaining to meeting the mobility needs of small, rural, and marginalized communities in California.

Caroline Rodier, Professional Researcher at the Institute of Transportation Studies at UC Davis (ITS-Davis), will share updates from a three-year experiment in electric vehicle carsharing servicing marginalized rural communities in California’s Central Valley. Jesus Barajas, Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Science and Policy at UC Davis, will share findings from a recently concluded study that assessed transportation barriers and adaptations in carless households.
