Transport and economic austerity: current and future research agendas

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talkResearch


Economic austerity policies since 2010 have widened and deepened poverty across the UK. With the cost of living set to rise again, this is an urgent national and local policy issue. Transport poverty has recently been recognised as an additional financial burden that many low-income households are struggling with. Although this issue is well-documented within transport research, we currently know very little about how people are experiencing transport austerity alongside the cost of living crisis. Equally, local transport policies, anti-poverty strategies and planned programmes do not directly confront the transport poverty issue.
