A Companion to Transport, Space and Equity

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. 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.

Chapter 17: Assessing utility, feasibility and equity with competence-based multi criteria analysis

Geert te Boveldt, Imre Keseru and Cathy Macharis


Geert te Boveldt, Imre Keseru and Cathy Macharis discuss the use of greater participatory approaches in transport appraisal, specifically through the application of Competence-based Multi Criteria Analysis (COMCA). This allows the use of multi-actor viewpoints where different actors have varied roles, tasks or levels of responsibility. The Brussels North-South railway corridor is used as a case study, with project options rated against a do-nothing alternative.
