    Today’s transportation systems suffer from historic and ongoing inequities embedded in infrastructure, access, and cost.

This must include explicit consideration of technology’s effects on those least prepared to use it or who face particular barriers to adoption to ensure their safety, access, and mobility are not compromised.
