Understanding Transport-Related Social Exclusion: A comprehensive framework

Over the last two decades, the number of studies concerned with the nexus between transport and social inclusion has increased dramatically. Despite this growing number and the centrality of social issues for transportation planning, there is still little conceptual clarity about what social exclusion means in the context of transport. This paper provides a comprehensive and multidimensional transport-related social exclusion (TRSE) framework to overcome some of these theoretical shortcomings. A range of notions commonly related to TRSE, such as disadvantage and poverty of transport and accessibility, are clarified and connected to the notion of TRSE. The authors suggested that framing accessibility in Amartya Sen's Capability Approach is powerful to articulate the concept of TRSE better, and derived from spatial and individual components of accessibility nine TRSE dimensions. Finally, the authors discuss the theoretical and practical concerns of the TRSE framework established.
