Chapter 10: Assessing transport equity through a cumulative accessibility measure and Google Maps: a case study for healthcare in Metro Manila

Neil Stephen Lopez and Jose Bienvenido Manuel Biona

Abstract

Neil Stephen Lopez and Jose Bienvenido Manuel Biona assess cumulative accessibility to healthcare services in Metro Manila, using Google maps. Access to health car provision differs by mode and travel budget, particularly under 100 Philippines Pesos (PhP). Almost half of zones do not have access to a healthcare facility by private car for a travel budget of 100 PhP. Public transport has advantages over private modes at lower travel budgets; and the private car becomes more advantageous at higher budgets. The peripheral areas have high costs of accessing healthcare, and this is where public transport access if often very limited.
