Access to affordable transportation
The Places We Wish to Go
The average cost of transportation in the United States is 15% of household income. In many underserved communities in Baton Rouge, access to affordable transportation is limited to walking, bikes, or busses. This often affects impoverished family’s abilities to get to school and/or work. Baton Rouge’s roads lack the proper accommodations for pedestrians and bike users, making this mode of transportation dangerous and even deadly.
