Against the backdrop of the rapid technological advancements, the debate on how the emerging digital turn will revolutionize individual and collective mobility is intensifying. An often-overlooked concern is that the emerging mobility service does not benefit citizens equally. It may benefit some citizens at the expense of others, or possibly drive uneven development that entrenches existing privileges and contribute to urban marginality, inequality, or social exclusion. Bearing these concerns in mind, this study focuses on the planning, accessibility, and spatial justice of emerging mobility services, and explores two questions: (a) what are the influencing factors preventing disadvantaged populations from using ride-hailing? (b) how to design a new public transit model toward spatial justice from the perspective of affordability and accessibility? The findings could help policymakers, transport planners, and managers formulate transport policies, spatial planning, and service operation strategies to mitigate the mobility gaps among distinct populations.
About the Speaker
Miss. Si Qiao is a final-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Urban Planning and Design at the University of Hong Kong. Her research interests lie in the cross fields of smart transport and human mobility, transport equity and social justice, and spatial planning. In particular, her study contributes to a broad sense of condensing spatial justice perspective into designing new transit solutions by integrating the agent-based simulation of human mobility and the analysis of changes in affordable accessibility of the disadvantaged populations.
