It is important to have a clear understanding of what is meant by transportation equity. The most common definitions equate transportation with the fair distribution of benefits and burdens of transportation projects, plans, policies and processes (Litman 2019; Rowangould, Karner, and London 2016).Transportation equity can be classified into three different types based on how fairness is assessed (Bullard 2003):
- Procedural equity, which is focused on the degree of involvement of diverse public stakeholders in the processes by which transportation decisions are made
- Geographic equity, which is focused on the distribution of impacts across geography and space
- Social equity, which is focused on the distribution across population groups that can be equal or differ by income, social class, and mobility ability (Litman 2019)
