Document Abstract

Tackling transport-related barriers to employment in low-income neighbourhoods

Explores ways to ensure that public transport enables people living in low income areas to access employment, drawing on the use of innovative time travel maps linking public transport with employment opportunities and interviews with residents. Outlines the process by which six case study areas were chosen and the key features in each area. Explores the work and commuting experiences, expectations and activities of residents looking for work. Considers the ways in which transport networks enable or constrain residents in securing employment. Presents policy and practice solutions to address the transport-related barriers identified, and provides conclusions on the potential for current barriers to be addressed.
