UEPI supports transportation options that help make society just, green and livable. The way that we move impacts everything from the shape of our cities, the air we breathe, and the food we eat. Current transportation policies and systems favor moving people in automobiles and moving products across borders to benefit corporations with global operations. UEPI wants green and fair transportation systems that allow everyone to walk and bike safely and use public transit; that create vibrant, walkable streets; and that prioritize healthy communities.
