On May 25th, the inaugural meeting began the first step forward for the Transportation & Mobility Coalition. The Transportation & Social Mobility (T&M) Coalition is focused on increasing access to safe and reliable methods of mobility. From comfortable and accessible walkable cities to commute times and costs, transportation is a critical component of a thriving life and economy. Many groups are connected to the work of transportation, but often in silos.
The co-chairs for Transportation & Mobility are Cheri Soileau from CATS and Tina Ufford from BikeBR. Before the launch, Reverand Alexis Anderson also was instrumental in the formation of the coalition.
