Social exclusion and transport in SA: moving towards sustainable transport?

This paper attempts to shed light on the relationship between social exclusion and access to transport in South Australia. The first part defines relevant terms, draws on Australian Bureau of Statistics Data to outline current transportation trends and uses mapping of Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas to identify vulnerable groups and areas. The next section explores measures, which support a move towards the vision of a sustainable transport system ensuring 'a fair go' for all South Australians. Finally, the paper highlights threats and opportunities for a socially, environmentally and economically sustainable transport future, thus identifying a range of policy options available to Government to achieve its social justice and transport objectives.
