This report is a joint effort of the Surface Transportation Policy Partnership and Transportation for America. Written by Michelle Ernst and Lilly Shoup, it builds on the research and analysis of a number of national organizations and policy experts who are working at the intersection of transportation, public health and safety, social equity, and the environment. Becca Homa, Linda Bailey, Stephen Lee Davis, and David Goldberg provided invaluable assistance in the analysis, research, and editing of the report.
STPP and its partners are pleased to release two new reports on the federal transportation law. The Guidebook reviews how federal surface transportation law can be used to support local and statewide efforts to build more livable communities and expand travel options.
This report serves as a companion to the publication From the Margins to
the Mainstream: A Guide to Transportation Opportunities in Your
Community. This publication recounts discussions and findings from a
series of seven workshops. The findings in this report are derived from a
review of workshop notes, workshop evaluations, and conversations
among participants and organizers.
