The paper examines the various aspects of the equity issue in urban transportation, an issue which has become increasingly controversial in recent years. A number of data sets are analyzed to determine the extent to which poor, elderly, or handicapped persons suffer from substandard levels of mobility. The authors then assess the cost-effectiveness and political feasibility of a range of alternative policy measures designed to increase the mobility of these disadvantaged groups.
