Mobility, Inclusion and the Green Case for Basic Income

Gideon Calder
Published Online: 2010-09-07 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2202/1932-0183.1181

This article sets out and briefly explores three main contentions. One is that mobility is a crucial aspect of social stratification – such that “transport disadvantage” is intimately tied up with social exclusion more generally. A second is that insofar as there is a green case for basic income (BI), there seems also, for similar reasons, to be a green case for free public transport. The third is that even while such a step might be deemed necessary for social and environmental justice, it is (unsurprisingly) by no means sufficient to achieve either.

Keywords: Keywords – basic income; free public transport; mobility; transport disadvantage
