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.
