Description

Inclusive Transport: Fighting Involuntary Transport Disadvantages offers profound and multifaceted insights into transportation and social equity, guiding transportation and urban studies researchers, planners and policymakers in evaluating potential solutions to this complex issue. The book looks into discrimination and its societal consequences, providing a needed perspective on not only who is left out of transportation planning, but why. Topics covered explore accessibility and affordability, the consequences of non-accessibility, the interplay between housing and transportation, how current transportation policies have developed over time, traffic safety, noise and air quality, and urban mobility.

Additional sections cover current transportation policies that reduce transportation disadvantages, such as fuel measures and subsidized car purchases, as well as urban measures on walking and cycling that make cities friendly for all citizens. The book concludes with a look at the future challenges related to developing passenger and freight mobility policies, focusing on sustainability challenges, people’s behaviors and emotions, and on creating more just and equitable mobility.
