Transit Solutions to Close the Park Equity Gap

Cohort Peer Conversation

Public transportation can be a solution to address the gap in community access to parks, trails, and green spaces both close and far from home. However, it requires a multi-pronged approach to identify problems and propose solutions. Moreover, funding “transit to parks” services often relies on partnerships between transit agencies, parks and recreation agencies, municipal, county, state, and federal governments, and their respective funding sources. Unfortunately, these different types of agencies are rarely aligned.

Join this discussion to explore how research, policy, and partnerships can work to create and implement equitable transit to parks.
