Chapter 12: Nature for all? Public transport and accessibility to natural sites
Restricted access

Nature, in general, is recognized as a source of various tangible and non-tangible benefits to people. Hence, nature is a basic need of people and should be accessible to all groups of society. By using various sources of data, including spatial information of natural sites, public transport service data and a nationwide survey of the visitation patterns to beaches, parks and natural sites, this chapter analyses the accessibility of domestic natural assets to the Israeli population. The findings point to the insufficient public transport provision in Israel as a possible barrier to achieve accessibility to natural sites in the country. The discussion calls for more international comparative studies that will shed light on the accessibility to nature in other countries and recommends the development of an inclusive policy of accessibility to nature.
