This project was completed as part of the 2016-2017 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with the City of Brooklyn Park. The Blue Line Light Rail extension is expected to reach Brooklyn Park by 2021. Brooklyn Park wanted to investigate shared-use mobility as a means of expanding access to light rail for those without regular access to a personal automobile. The goal of this project was to develop an engagement strategy around transportation access. Brooklyn Park project lead Emily Carr worked with a team of students in PA 5232/CEGE 5212: Transportation Policy, Planning, and Development, who conducted intercept surveys with residents at a local farmers' market and a community transportation center to learn about transportation barriers they face in Brooklyn Park. The students' final report and presentation are available.
