Equity Through Access Plan

Posted by Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission on November 17, 2020

Updated Equity Through Access Plan Now Available

DVRPC’s Board recently accepted the Equity Through Access (ETA) plan, which identifies regional priorities for improving transportation access for older adults, persons with disabilities, and low-income populations.

To create these priorities, DVRPC staff held workshops with groups of vulnerable transportation riders and human services transportation providers to hear about their experiences, concerns, and essential needs. These conversations combined with DVRPC regional data and best practice research helped prioritize strategies for increasing transportation access. This plan is used by the counties in the DVRPC region, NJDOT, and PennDOT to allocate funding for coordinated human services transportation planning.

The ETA Gaps & Bridges document is now available online along with the ETA Map Toolkit, which is an interactive mapping tool that demonstrates the disparities in transportation access in our region and possible priority areas for improvement.
