Eran Feitelson puts forward an approach to examining the equity implications of public transport, discussing the attributes of different transport systems, the types of trips made and attributes of travellers - and hence summarises the likely equity implications. There are important impacts on accessibility and life prospects. The hyper-mobile benefit most from travel, and these use air and high speed rail in particular. The most obviously progressive mode is the use of the bus (alongside walking), which is subsidised by taxpayers and, in the main, serves lower income groups.
