Transport poverty is a problem for every layer of the population

Mobiel 21 and Netwerk Duurzame Mobiliteit (Network Sustainable Mobility), with researchers from the University of Ghent and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, have investigated the underlying factors of transport poverty. Transport poverty occurs when people cannot fully participate in society because of limited mobility. Based on the results, the researchers drew up five profiles of less mobile people in Belgium, each with their own characteristics, behaviour and degree of transport poverty, and identified possible measures to combat the issue. Koos Fransen, researcher at VUB and UGent: " The fact that transport poverty is a problem with many faces also means there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Being aware that there is such a thing as transport poverty and ensuring, through effective policy choices, that everyone gets to where they need to be is therefore a very important step towards breaking through this form of exclusion. ?
