Many times, when people think of community justice, transportation isn’t the first thing that comes to mind; rather wealth, opportunity, and privilege distribution. Yet when you consider these characterizations and how limited access or simple lack of transportation plays out, we learn that transportation must be intimately woven into the community justice conversation.

The ability to freely move about and access jobs, food, and other services, is a vital piece to living a full, healthy life. Transportation, whether public or private, is far too often focused on those who can easily access it. This leaves those who rely on public transportation with little choice and often the most unreliable options.
