UCLA Arrowhead Series: Transit’s Path to Recovery

Transit thrives on density. It’s most effective in serving mobility needs in corridors where a concentration of places to live, work, and play means higher trip demand and densely packed vehicles. This density is the antithesis of public health measures to control the spread of COVID-19. The pandemic has affected transit demand, supply, funding, management, and politics. What is transit’s path forward to recovery?

Speakers:

Darnell Grisby
Director, Policy Development and Research, American Public Transportation Association

Brian Taylor
Director, UCLA Institute of Transportation Studies

Phil Washington
CEO, LA Metro

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.
