Edited by Robin Hickman, Beatriz Mella Lira, Moshe Givoni and Karst Geurs

With social inequity in urban spaces becoming an increasing concern in our modern world, The Elgar Companion to Transport, Space and Equity explores the relationships between transport and social equity.

Chapter 12: Planning transport to meet the needs of children and young people

Janet Stanley, John Stanley and Brendan Gleeson


Janet Stanley, John Stanley and Brendan Gleeson examine transport and social equity impacts from the perspective of children and young people. They examine the theoretical contributions from authors such as Rawls and Sen, the use of needs identification in transport planning, and the importance of transport for children and young people in helping them to participate in activities and social interaction. They suggest that the needs of children and other groups in society should be better catered for, instead of solely focusing on improving the journey to work for commuters.
