Planning transport to meet the needs of children and young people

Janet Stanley, John Stanley () and Brendan Gleeson

Chapter 12 in A Companion to Transport, Space and Equity, 2019, pp 167-179 from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: 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.
