How the Greater Hartford Mobility Study is Connecting with Connecticut Communities in a New And Inclusive Way
COMTO spotlighted public member agency, Connecticut Department of Transportation, on the one-year anniversary of the passing of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law for taking steps to connect underserved communities in Greater Hartford who have been disenfranchised by lack of access to interconnected systems that can meet their daily needs – jobs, food, health care and more.
Through the work of the Greater Hartford Mobility Study (GHMS), people of color, people with low incomes, and other disenfranchised communities have a seat at the table to help shape the future of a more equitable transportation system.
The GHMS will provide short, medium, and long-term goals, and through the Federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, funding will be available to implement projects to help right some of the historical injustices caused by the transportation system.
