Abstract

Many groups within society continue to experience, and be subjected to, what can only be termed 'transport disadvantage'. Traditionally, recognition of the barriers experienced by these groups has been overlooked. The paper explores the reasons why this is the case with reference to the problematical perspectives and methodologies of transport policy-makers and planners. Personal accounts of individuals are used to demonstrate that 'transport disadvantage' is experienced by many different groups within society and is a social concern that must be included as a priority target for public policy. The importance of considering such travel experiences becomes apparent and is paramount to the development of barrier-free living.
