Abstract:

The report, An Engine of Opportunity: A User's Guide to Advocate for Transportation Equity in the 2009 Recovery Act, provides a roadmap for advocates to ensure stimulus-funded public transportation projects bring hope and economic opportunity to millions of Americans hit first and worst by the economic downturn.

The report shows advocates how they can push local, state, and federal leaders to make fair and just transportation investments in low-income communities and communities of color.
