Abstract/Description

Improving the urban environment for these vulnerable and excluded groups will be a key challenge for the planners of the future. So how can any interested readers reflect this in their own work? We argue here that the design of urban land use and public transport access for such heterogeneous populations demands collaborative multi-professional working between urban designers, urban planners, users, researchers, campaign groups, policy-makers and managers. Taking up this challenge, this themed issue on ‘Disabilities and vulnerable road users in the urban environment’ draws on insights from European research leaders and campaigners.
