As a follow-up to the HiReach project, the project team is very happy to announce that our book, Re-thinking Mobility Poverty – Understanding Users’ Geographies, Backgrounds and Aptitudes, is published!

The book in general seeks to better conceptualise and define mobility poverty, addressing both its geographies and socio-economic landscapes. It moves beyond the analysis of ‘transport poverty’ and innovatively explores mobility inequalities and social construction of mobility disadvantages. EPF – Delphine Grandsart – also contributed and wrote a chapter on ‘The impact of life events on travel behaviour’.

The book covers a wide variety of aspects, dealing with social skills and individual aptitudes, geographical factors, societal roots and impacts (e.g. gender, age, low income). It also describes the fieldwork conducted in HiReach.

The book is available through open access here.
