Regional Transit and Equity in the Bay Area
There is a scene in the movie John Wick where the gangster kingpin explains to his son who John Wick is and says, “The bodies he buried that day laid the foundation of what we are now.”
As we think about the history of development, transportation, and regional governance, we need to pay attention to the people and places in our community who were left out, paved over, and ignored. While those in power were not exactly gangsters, the legacy of racism and classism embedded in our built environment did, in fact, harm some and advance the fortunes of others.
