One thing that can make cities livable for everyone in and around them is good public transportation.

A new study led by a Vanderbilt University professor will examine Chattanooga’s transit system - known as CARTA - to find cost-efficient ways to connect public transportation with underserved communities.

One person involved with the project - known as “Mobility for All” - is Chandra Ward, a professor of sociology, social, cultural and justice studies on our campus:  The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
