The No Go Zone: On Demand Micro Mobility and Mobility Justice in North Texas

On demand micro transit is an increasingly popular solution to urban mobility problems. How do local transit agencies evaluate the community and service impacts of on demand micro transit? What assumptions are being made about the scales of impacts? How are equity and justice being integrated into decision-making?

Utilizing a case study of Go Zone, an on-demand pilot in Denton, Texas, Dr. Lauren Ames Fischer examines the distributive, procedural, deliberative, and epistemic justice elements of the project, evaluates how local practices uphold principles of mobility justice and identifies lessons the agency, city and their partners learned from this ongoing mobility experiment. 

Lunch provided (first come, first served).
