Kara Luckey was awarded "Best Poster" at the U.S. Department of Transportation Dwight D. Eisenhower Fellows Showcase held at the 93rd Annual Transportation Research Board meeting in D.C. Kara was invited to present in the showcase as part of her 2013-14 Eisenhower Fellowship, which supports top graduate students in transportation. Kara's poster, "Promoting socially-equitable transit and transit-oriented development: What are the key planning and policy levers?," provides an overview of her dissertation work, which is currently underway. This research focuses on identifying the ways in which cities and regions are maximizing the benefit of regional rail transit for low- and moderate-income families through planning and policies, and assessing the effectiveness of those interventions. Her work complements existing case studies by undertaking a systematic cross-case comparison of 20+ U.S. metropolitan areas. Kara's poster can be downloaded here.
