How can we connect different transportation modes in time and space at the neighborhood level to solve the Transit Desert problem? How can we facilitate Community-Centered Design? How can we implement this model throughout Austin and beyond?
The goal of this project is to develop, implement, and evaluate a Community Hub for Smart Mobility (CHSM) to solve the job/housing mismatch in US cities. The research team will focus on Georgian Acres, a historically under-resourced neighborhood in northeast Austin, Texas and work with multiple civic partners to address the unique transportation needs of the neighborhood.
