Request for Information on Transportation Data and Assessment Methods
Request for Information on Transportation Equity Data
On January 20, 2021, President Biden signed Executive Order (EO) 13985, “Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government.” Through the implementation of this Administration priority, the Department of Transportation (USDOT or Department) will undertake a comprehensive approach to advance racial equity for all, including individuals who have been historically underserved and adversely affected by persistent poverty or income inequality.
On May 25, 2021, USDOT announced a Request for Information (RFI) to receive input from the public on the data and assessment tools available to assess transportation equity. Equitable access to transportation is a civil right, and this RFI is one action that USDOT is taking in response to EO 13985. Responses are requested no later than 5:00 pm (eastern time) on July 22, 2021.
