UCLA Arrowhead Series: Mobility for Vulnerable Populations
The COVID-19 crisis disproportionately impacts the most vulnerable in our society, including to their mobility. How has the pandemic affected patient access to routine, in-person medical appointments? How do public health precautions affect evacuations during a disaster like wildfires? What do we know about the mobility needs and behaviors of low-income populations? Knowing how the pandemic touches on and shapes the mobility of these vulnerable populations can inform government and community response.

The UCLA Arrowhead Symposium presents the remote learning series Not “Back to Normal:” Mapping a Just Transportation Recovery from COVID-19. Since the COVID-19 outbreak, transportation agencies have suffered a profound shock, after already struggling with ages of systemwide inequities and inefficiencies. The intensity and speed with which COVID-19 spread through communities around the globe forced quick and often difficult adaptations by the industry. These challenges were exacerbated by transportation’s history of rigid and slow-changing systems. Returning “back to normal” would mean returning to an era of declining transit ridership, chronic congestion, unsafe streets, regressive finance, and persistent mobility challenges for economically and socially vulnerable populations.
