We examine how emerging mobility innovations could be seamlessly integrated onto legacy transportation systems in a manner that is both efficiency and equity driven and that explicitly address the intersection of transportation and other domains such as access to healthcare, housing, human services, employment, service delivery, and healthy food. With the focus on marginalized and underserved communities, our research develops analytic models that can inform how mobility innovations could be coupled onto existing transportation infrastructure. Beyond focusing on populations that live below an income threshold, we will also be addressing niche populations, for example individuals that self-report some form of disability. Our approach privileges the interests and preferences of the aforementioned communities by centering their voices in the solution creation process and by letting their needs and values inspire the innovation rather than asking them to adapt their travel behavior to the solution.
