With social inequity in urban spaces becoming an increasing concern in our modern world, A Companion to Transport, Space and Equity explores the relationships between transport and social equity. Transport systems and infrastructure investment can lead to inequitable travel behaviours, with certain socio-demographic groups using particular parts of the transport system and accessing particular activities and opportunities. Employing international case studies to scrutinise the spatial and social equity impacts of transport systems and infrastructure, the contributors bring together wide-ranging empirical research to fill in the lacunae on social equity. This nuanced and comprehensive Companion examines transport investments, and related changes in accessibility, urban form and development, house prices and gentrification to better understand the complex relationships between transport and social equity. Drawing together competing perspectives, this book highlights the range and dimensions of the debate, the complexity and tensions, and the progression of the argument over time. Provocative and comprehensive, this book will serve as an impressive guide for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as offering a detailed reference point for researchers and academics working on urban social equity. Consultants and policy makers overseeing transport infrastructure, city planning and wider public policy will also benefit from this book's rigorous empirical approach to transport impacts.

'This unique and comprehensive volume provides a much-needed lens into multiple dimensions of transport equity across the life cycle, genders, modes, and indeed, the entire globe. By drawing from a diverse collection of cases, this collection advances our understanding of equitable transport, with relevant implications for theory and practice alike.' -- - Karen Chapple, University of California, Berkeley, US 'This impressive collection by international authorities brings together aspects of equity issues in transport, space and society. Its strength is that it includes not just conceptual issues but puts these firmly in the context of case studies drawn from all over the world and countries at differing stages of development.' -- Roger Vickerman, University of Kent, UK
