Subject: Fair transport
I will like the concept of fair transport a great deal if it does what ‘sustainable transport’ never quite managed to do – i.e. incorporate the notion of accessibility – not in the jargonistic transport sense, but in the sense that we mere mortals use it. I don’t want to use the term ‘disabled access’ although that’s one distinction I make when talking to transport professionals. It’s about more than that – it’s dignified, socially enhancing access for everyone. You touch on it in mentioning gender issues, but I’d like it to be a little broader, and perhaps more explicit. In my experience, if it isn’t mentioned explicitly it isn’t addressed – it just gets lost, despite everyone’s best intentions.
