p>During EMBARQ’s Sunday session at the Transportation Review Board’s annual meeting I noticed that one of the day’s ongoing discussion topics dealt with the relationship between transportation policy and class politics. Transportation policy affects all citizens, but it does not always do so uniformly.

Mexico City, like many developing country metropolises, is confronting enormous urban planning challenges as it grows at unprecedented rates. Uneven access to infrastructure and basic needs like water is often the result.
