Transport can enhance equity and health outcomes in large cities. Using photo-ethnography, our team aimed to illustrate how TransMiCable, an integrated urban transport intervention, can positively affect social and health inequities in a self-built community in Latin America. TransMiCable connects an outskirt area of Bogotá with the rest of the city, reducing travel time and improving access to cultural and recreational spaces. The urban transformations reshaped community perception, increasing neighborhood satisfaction and quality of life while reducing social stigma. Through integrated urban interventions and cross-sectoral work, policymakers can mitigate inequities in social determinants of health.
