TRANSPORT AND SOCIAL EQUITY

The author reviews the problem of the integration of transport needs into a social and economic environment and suggests that the remaining gap lies in social equity or "fairness". The article also discusses the manner in which levels of income and social status act as constraints on personnel opportunity through the use of a transport facility. The effect of social inequality on a way of life in a stratified society is examined and it is suggested that transport systems are needed which reflect society's priorities where group interests are represented. /TRRL/
