Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Assistant Professor Candace Brakewood was quoted in a Bloomberg CityLab article examining how payments for transit fares have changed during the pandemic.

“As public transit providers harness the power of new technologies—such as mobile apps for fare payment—it is critical that we consider underrepresented populations and find inclusive solutions that meet the needs of all transit riders. This research project will take an important step toward achieving this goal,” said Brakewood.
Five faculty members from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, were selected to be fellows of the Center for Transporation Research.
“We need to be thinking towards the future,” she said. “As we become increasingly more reliant on our devices as we travel, we need to understand the implications for this on infrastructure.”
