FR9.40.15 Metromobility and Spatial Justice II: The Challenges of Equity Planning and Governance

This panel focuses on spatial justice issues related to bus- and rail-based urban transit. It looks to regimes of metromobility in order to understand how metropolitan transit spaces are produced, by and for whom, and to what effect. Panelists consider the relationships between metromobility and (in)justice in different empirical contexts and through a variety of epistemological postures and theoretical lenses. On the one hand, they trace how transit systems are imbricated in complex relations of urban inequality and oppression. On the other hand, they also explore how transit systems may be planned, managed, and used in emancipatory ways. In so doing, panelists make important contributions to debates about mobility justice and the right to the city.
