Descripción
Policies that enhance accessibility to major activities (e.g. health care facilities, educational facilities, food stores) are increasingly considered an essential component of plans to achieve sustainable urban futures. One relevant limitation can lie in considering transport accessibility as an absolute parameter, which paying no particular attention to how accessibility is distributed among individual members of society. To address that, the present paper aims at evaluating the social equity effects by mapping how "Retail Mobility Environments"-homogenous geographical areas that interrelate non-motorised accessibility and retail activity-distribute non-motorised accessibility to retails between different socioeconomic groups of population. The city of Zaragoza (Spain), where there is a clear institutional objective to foster non-motorised mobility patterns to retail activity, served as case study. A specific method has been developed that locates, identifies and compares from a spatial viewpoint both "Disadvantage Accessibility places" (DAPs) and "Advantage Accessibility Places" (AAPs) for four socioeconomic groups of population (young employed, young non-employed, seniors, and adults). Results suggest that young non-employed have the most inequitable distribution of non-motorised accessibility, while young employed is the most favoured group. The paper concludes with a discussion on both the need to use accessibility measures as a basic unit to assess transportation equity effects and the challenge to establish accessibility minimum standards for population
