The goals of safety and equity in transportation are aligned. Private vehicles are the most deadly form of transportation. The DC Policy Center has shown that areas where car-free living is most possible are predominantly rich and white, while low-income and Black neighborhoods face more difficulty getting around without one, but also have a disproportionate share of the city’s non-car households. The vast majority of bus riders in our region are people of color, low income, and non-car owners. The idea that incentivizing transit, walking, and micromobility over cars is inequitable is completely backwards.
