Hyatt Regency Baltimore Inner Harbor
300 Light St, Baltimore, MD

Convened by
Transportation Research Board

Supported by
Federal Highway Administration

Sponsored by
Standing Committee on Equity in Transportation (AME10)


The 2nd Conference on Advancing Transportation Equity will be held July 15-18, 2024 at the Hyatt Regency Inner Harbor in Baltimore, MD. The CATE 2024 theme, Reaching Across the Divide: Research, Community Implementation, and Shared Experiences suggests that transportation equity and mobility justice goals will only advance by connecting transportation work to community needs.

The conference will bridge the gap between the transportation equity analyses that agencies conduct and conditions on the ground. Presenters will emphasize concrete outcomes and examples of advancing transportation equity. They will highlight practical solutions and programs.

Participate in the advancement of equity and environmental justice in transportation practices and research attending, supporting and/or presenting at CATE 2024.

CATE 2024 includes an unconference portion of the CATE 2024 program. Unlike the conventional portions of the conference program (plenary, technical, and poster sessions) that are organized by a conference planning committee, the unconference offers a program that is organized by the participants with the intention to provide a platform for the informal exchange of information and ideas among attendees. The unconference is particularly an opportunity for community-based organizations, nontransportation officials, and others who do not normally attend TRB conferences to collaborate with transportation researchers and practitioners. Participants will propose session themes. Participants then create sessions based on those ideas. The session discussions are led by the participants with the guidance of a facilitator to help capture viewpoints for research and practice.

General registration provides attendees access to all activities of the conference, which includes the unconference. Participants may select to register for only the unconference, which does not include access to the rest of the conference.

Participants will:

  • Gain an understanding of the fundamental concept of equity and its interplay with the state of transportation decision making, practices, policies, guidance, and regulations
  • Exchange ideas with peers about frameworks and mechanisms

  • Identify successful methods, strategies, and tools for measuring progress toward equity, particularly for transportation agency performance within their investment and implementation strategies
  •  Learn effective outreach and engagement strategies to coordinate with stakeholder populations and partners during implementation of equity-focused projects and services
  • Frame future equity research to address ongoing questions and pervasive gaps in knowledge and practice
