Transportation Equity through Innovative Legal Theory and Organized Community-Led Effort
People living in central cities who need and want to work often do not have transportation to jobs, unless they can take public transportation. In Free to Ride, a film by OSU’s Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity, learn about how the Regional Transit Authority (RTA) in Dayton, Ohio was willing to add a bus stop to make a suburban mall and health care facility accessible for Dayton residents - but the suburb’s city council voted down the RTA’s request. ABLE’s innovative legal work on behalf of concerned Dayton citizens resulted in transportation equity for thousands.
