Mobility and spatial equity
In many cities of developing countries, where poverty can rise up to 60% or even more, the majority of its inhabitants travels by public transport, bicycle or walking. Private car is only for a small part of the people that can afford one. The people living in the peripheries are mainly those that have the bigger difficulties in finding an efficient and economic transport mean. So if we are talking about equity, shouldn´t the poorest should also have this opportuninity of having good access to the city? the public policies shouldn´t be focusing also on giving good and efficient transport means in order to reduce the inequity? What is your opinion?
