One relevant challenge in the field of sustainable mobility is to plan and operate transport services equitable from a geographical and a social point of view. New forms of mobility can exacerbate pre-existing inequalities in the access to public transport systems by excluding some urban areas such as low-income neighborhoods or outskirts, where residents could benefit most from more supply. The goal of this work is to frame these aspects and discuss them taking into account the most recent studies, highlighting the key aspects worth to being explored by researchers and transport planning professionals.
