This Special Issue of the journal Sustainability is related to the analysis of transport poverty and inequalities to deepen into the social side of sustainability. The papers to be included in this issue should reflect questions related to transport inequalities and transport poverty highlighting the relationship among transport provision, social exclusion and transport disadvantages. We welcome contributions discussing how transport disadvantage impacts, to a greater extent, particular groups that include the elderly, people with health problems, low-income groups, those living in conditions of poverty, the unemployed or disabled people. Proposed papers may show that transportation inequity also has economic consequences, since there can be individuals that spend an excessive amount of time or money travelling. This way, transport inequalities can result in different environmental impacts by gender, age or income level. At the same time, inadequate public transport facilities may hinder access for individuals to work, education, health care services and sociocultural activities. In another vein, papers that point out how dangerous, unsafe or unhealthy travel conditions for individuals can go against sustainability are also welcome.Prof. Dr. Carmen Lizárraga
