The report addresses the need to be beyond the consideration of social, economic and environmental impacts of transportation planning in the aggregate, and take into account the detailed distribution of positive and negative effects of transportation planning decisions on various subgroups with specific needs and disadvantages. Distributive analysis can help to open up the politics of transportation planning by making complex information more accessible, raising hidden issues and sparking debate. If accompanied by explicit attention to distributive effects at new points in the planning process, an expanded range of possible interventions to consider strategies outside transportation itself, and bringing new participants into the planning and decision making process, along with a new set of roles and expectations, distributive analysis can make possible more equitable policy outcomes.
