Refugees and Transportation in Vermont: Travel Behavior and Critical Questions Based on Gender, Age and Transportation Hierarchies

This project seeks to examine the transportation behaviors and attitudes of several sub-groups within the refugee population in Vermont. In particular, the project seeks to understand the impacts of transportation limitations, barriers, and opportunities on the resettlement and acculturation experiences of women, children, and the elderly within the various refugee communities within Vermont (with a specific focus on refugees who have arrived since 2001, primarily from Africa and Asia). As well, a key objective of this project is to examine in greater detail the culture of travel amongst refugee communities and whether transportation hierarchies are linked to the expectations and experiences of acculturation and resettlement.
