From Rail~Volution 2022 website: "Rail~Volution is the hub and spark for a network of leaders, practitioners and advocates inspired by the potential for major transit investments to shape more vibrant and equitable communities. The Rail~Volution network shares the belief that the focus of any new investment is not so much the project—whether rail, bus, trail or development—but the people and what they want their communities to become."

Demographic data from a major trip planning app in 60 American cities shows that low-income riders and communities of color have strongly adopted mobile trip planning tools. While 76% of Americans earning less than $30,000 per year own a smartphone, and 89% of urban residents do, the quality of data for public-transit trip-planning is rarely understood as an issue of social and racial justice. Common and harmful misconceptions about who uses technology and how have led many governments and transportation agencies ignore the importance of providing high quality live data. Join this session to expand your understanding of digital information equity.
