Transport and Sustainability
This volume compiles contributions from international scholars on the social impacts of urban mobility and discussions on concepts and methods to examine the distributional effects of transport policies in Latin America.

Chapters discuss concepts and methods for explaining the distributional effects of transport policies and for exploring alternatives to ensure equity and non-discrimination in access for more inclusive cities. Recognizing the deep relationship between accessibility, equity and inclusion, the contributions in this book are collated in three sections: structural dimensions of accessibility, active travel and local accessibility, and accessibility of emerging mobilities. The book builds on a balanced collection of case studies and comparative perspectives that showcase territorial, economic, political and social drivers of urban mobility and the development of accessible and inclusive urban spaces in Latin American cities.
