Geographic Area Covered: Philadelphia, Trenton, Norristown

Abstract: The objective of this project is to better understand how people living in communities of color in the DVRPC region choose their mode of transportation, and what physical, social, or structural forces shape those choices. We did this by surveying in three communities: •North Trenton, NJ; •Norristown, PA; and •Mantua/East Parkside neighborhoods in Philadelphia. The intent of this work is to develop a report and qualitative dataset that can be used by DVRPC and its regional partners to better understand the needs of these communities and inform decision making around future transportation programming and planning.
