  • Abstract:
    The objectives of the re-search included identifying information and materials on issues and resources related to environmental justice, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, social equity, and the use of community impact assessment techniques (CIA) in the transit industry. As a result of the research and the primer, Community Impact Assessment: A Quick Reference Guide for Transportation (hereinafter referred to as the CIA Reference), the purpose of this guide is to pro-vide tools, techniques, and references that may be used to assess transit actions. Although environmental justice and Title VI issues receive special attention, the empha-sis is on the use of the impact assessment process for all communities. Many transporta-tion professionals and analysts state that, if transportation actions are properly assessed, environmental justice, Title VI, and other social issues will be addressed and in a manner that allows the input of the public throughout the decision-making process.
