MJ Lead Linovski Examines Public Transit and the Lived Experiences of People from Equity-Deserving Groups

Mobilizing Justice Theme 3 lead, Orly Linovski, along with Heather Dorries and Sheryl-Ann Simpson, recently completed a report examining public transit and the lived experiences of people from equity-deserving groups. They find that the lived experiences of equity-deserving groups are well documented in both academic and community-based research, and describe four cross-cutting themes: poor or absent transit service; unaffordability of transit fares; policing and enforcement; and safety. The research demonstrates the impact of poor public transit on equity-deserving groups in wide-ranging ways, such as restricting access to healthcare, education and employment; limiting support for people experiencing domestic violence; and, reducing the ability of people to access social services, visit with family and friends, and participate in cultural activities. Report is available here.
