School of City and Regional Planning first-year MCRP student, Taylor Gibbs, has received a grant of $5,000 to conduct research for the Center for Transportation Equity, Decisions and Dollars (CTEDD). The grant is part of the University Transportation Center (UTC) program funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT).

Gibbs’ research will identify service level equity gaps in 2 Atlanta transportation networks: MARTA and the Atlanta Streetcar. The study aims to highlight how the level of service impacts employment, upward mobility, and job density based on population characteristics. Results will enable a comprehensive analysis of transit’s role in the Atlanta metro-region, specifically how the current transit network facilitates or inhibits access and equity in specific locations. It also aims to provide a better picture of transit network efficiency overall. In addition to her own research, Gibbs is a Graduate Research Assistant for the Center for Spatial Planning Analytics and Visualization (CSPAV).

The Center for Transportation Equity, Decisions and Dollars (CTEDD) is a consortium of five universities leading transportation policy research that improves economic development through the more efficient and cost-effective use of existing transportation systems and offers better access to jobs and opportunities.
