Advancing Equity and Accessibility in Maryland's Transportation System: Strategies for Integrating Mobility Innovations with Community Needs

The Quarterly Report explores the features of the Consolidated Transportation Program (CTP) annual attainment report 2024 and the current equity mapping outcomes considered by Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT). The report also evaluates three equity-related toolkits, namely the Comprehensive Statewide Needs Assessment (CSNA), the Climate and Economic Justice Screening Tool (CEJST), and the Equitable Transportation Community (ETC) Explorer. The authors have tried to evaluate the efficacy of these tools in providing accurate equity assessments for MDOT. The report also mentions some additional equity toolkits implemented by the various government agencies and private companies. The document provides potential use cases and applications for MDOT to be able to use the equity perspective in several projects, plans, grants, and outcome assessments. The report mentions some examples of performance measures used in equity-related evaluations of transportation projects. The report ends with the outline for the next task as a part of this project.
