Part Three of this book is a reflection of Part Two in the US context. This chapter discusses the way in which transport inequalities have moved to the forefront of the US transport-policy agenda in recent years under the banner of the environmental-justice movement. It describes the origins of environmental justice through the American Civil Rights movement and identifies the mechanisms by which concerns about transport inequity have increasingly influenced this agenda and been taken up by US Federal Law.

Keywords:   US, US Federal Law, transport inequalities, environmental-justice movement, Civil Rights movement
