Transport Justice: Designing Fair Transportation Systems

This publication develops a new paradigm for transportation planning based on the principles of justice. There are consequences to this approach, some enjoying the improvement in the transports systems ans some are experiencing a substantial deterioration. The growing body of academic evidence on the disparities in mobility and accessibility are increasing calls for policy change to address these inequities. The publication argues that governments have the fundamental duty of providing virtually every person the adequate transportation and thus of mitigating the social disparities. The table of contents include: Introduction; Fairness in Traditional Transportation Planning; Setting the Stage; The Social Meaning of Transportation; Accessibility as a Primary Good?; Insuring for Lack of Accessibility; Defining Sufficient Accessibility; Transportation Planning based on Principles of Justice; Case Study: The Fairness of Amsterdam's Transportation System; and Seeing Transportation Justice.
