Descripción
Modern societies face important transport related challenges that menace their economic performance and quality of life. Among these challenges, congestion is a major problem in many cities around the world, generating economic losses and negative environmental impacts such as noise and pollution, which negatively affects the life and health of their citizens. Provision of transport alternatives is a top goal of many transport planners. However, the available transport options are not always at the disposal of all social groups, which raises questions on the equitability and affordability of transport means. These challenges require the integration of different policies that consider the complexity of direct and indirect impacts of transport systems. The concept of accessibility, as a measure of the relative nearness or proximity of one place and persons to all other places or persons, can help to integrate transport and urban/spatial planning actions. Accessibility incorporates implicit conditions such as closeness, availability of transport options and diversity of activities that might be of interest for society. Although many different definitions and measures for the concept of accessibility exist in the literature [1, 2, 5], accessibility instruments are typically considered useful instruments for the planning practice [3]. This Topical Collection on Accessibility and Policy Making presents a collection of five studies that apply accessibility measures to analyse transport and land use policies. Table 1 shows an overview of these studies, focusing on their relevance for policy making.
