EQUITY, FAIRNESS AND JUSTICE AND THE ROLE OF TRANSPORT PLANNING . PLANNING FOR PUBLIC TRANSPORT - A DYING ART? TWENTY-FIRST ANNUAL PUBLIC TRNASPORT SYMPOSIUM, HELD AT UNIVERSITY OF NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE, MARCH 27-29 1990

This paper identifies 7 principles of equity and fairness in the treatment of ordinary citizens in their roles as transport users, taxpayers and residents; these are: procedural fairness, formal equality, substantive equality, desert, need and rights. Four categories of transport planning issues are then identified: process (the way in which decisions are made); provision (the level of service offered); burden of costs (subsidy and cross subsidy), and externalities (a cost imposed on certain individuals as an unintended side effect). The author goes on to demonstrate his theory by means of a series of tables surveying transport debate and legislation in the United Kingdom from 1960-88. For the covering abstract of this conference, see IRRD 833068. (Author/TRRL)
