Welcome to Fair Transport Lab
The Fair Transport Lab is home to a team of researchers studying the fairness of transport systems in developed and developing countries. The lab aims to push the boundaries of transport research by engaging in philosophical and empirical research. The lab seeks to deliver both fundamental insights that reshape the way we think about transport and hands-on knowledge that can bolster advocates, professionals and decision-makers around the world in their search for fairer transport systems.
