Exploring both how transport systems provide access to opportunities and the barriers faced by so many users

Deliberately taking a broad view of the term accessibility, we are interested in it at all levels, from the individual to the global. What motivates people to move in the first place and what benefit do they derive from moving? What makes a place or a system accessible and what can be done to address hidden, as well as visible, barriers? And how should we tackle inequalities of access at each level?

Our definition of accessibility encompasses not just propensity to travel and the relative ease of movement but the practical business of doing it - network resilience, user effort, the role of information and new technology in enabling transport systems to be more accessible and responsive.
