This paper reports on a study that combined quantitative Census data with qualitative field data collected in interviews and focus groups, to better understand which individuals may in fact be transportation-disadvantaged, and which personal and household factors or environmental conditions correlate with concentrations of transportation-disadvantaged populations.
This research argues that combined use of the bicycle and public transport should be understood in a broad perspective, especially where bicycles link to higher speed and higher capacity public transport, such as the train.
This study aims to describe travel behavior of residents in Transit-oriented developments (TODs) and its impacts on levels of physical activity through utilitarian trips (i.e., routine trips to school, work and grocery shopping).
The purpose of this paper is to define transportation equity-related terms, synthesize and highlight recent research findings related to the travel needs of traditionally underserved populations ; and share strategies, practices and resources to address bicycle and pedestrian planning inequities.
This report summarises U.S.-wide data on trends in walking and biking, and explores the intersections among transportation, health, economics, equity, government funding, and advocacy efforts.
This report highlights the economic burden of increasing diabetes rates, noting that "The global prevalence (age-standardized) of diabetes has nearly doubled since 1980, rising from 4.7% to 8.5% in the adult population." They recommend that "Urban planning and active transport policies can ensure that walking, cycling and other forms of non-motorized transport are accessible and safe for all. "
This research demonstrate the great potential for the reduction in energy consumption and pollutants caused by urban goods transport by shifting intra-urban final delivery of goods from the car to the bicycle.
