New Paper: Learning about spatial inequalities: Capturing the heterogeneity in the urban environment

Transportation systems can be conceptualized as an instrument of connecting people and their activities over the territory, playing an important role in developing sustainable cities. The current rationale of transport provision is based on population demand and rarely considers the potential of minimizing spatial disparities and uneven distribution of services. To meet the challenge of supporting a more equitable resources distribution, this work aims at identifying and describing patterns of urban services supply, their accessibility, and household income. By using a multidimensional approach, the spatial inequalities of a large city of the global south reveal that the low-income population has low access mainly to hospitals and cultural centers.
