A new documentary about the fight for equal rights on America's roads and transit lines. Many African American communities were bulldozed in the 1960s to make way for highways. Today, bus service to poor neighborhoods is cut in favor of more expensive rail. This collaborative reporting project from Transportation Nation and WNYC visits communities across America where people of color still struggle for equal treatment in public transportation.
