Despite being a wealthy city with a world-renowned transport network, many Londoners still face significant barriers to accessing London’s transport network.
Many Londoners live in areas under-served by public transport, while others are unable to access the transport options available because of high costs, lack of step-free access or other non-physical barriers.
Centre for London’s new report, Fair access: Towards a fairer transport system for everyone, explores how equitable London transport is and how it hurts underprivileged Londoners, including those who are on low incomes, disabled, elderly or from ethnic minorities.
Join us at the launch, where our Research Manager Silviya Barrett will present the findings and we will hear from a panel of experts discussing how London transport could be more inclusive, affordable and accessible, exploring questions such as:
- How do the transport needs of different groups of Londoners vary?
- How can we better address these different needs? What role should technology play?
- How can we ensure that equity is at the centre of making transport investment decisions?
- What can the Mayor do to make transport more affordable? Do we need to review the zonal structure or concessions?
