Abstract

In recent years there has been an increasing interest in analysis of accessibility and related studies. The concept of accessibility is multifaceted, since it is investigated in a variety of disciplines, such as transportation planning, spatial planning, urban and environmental planning, spatial economics, transport and spatial economics. Accessibility is an important theme of research, because it concerns the benefits to people of accessing a certain location, by using a particular transportation system. In this respect, the level of accessibility can be considered to be a relevant indicator of the efficiency of the transportation system under analysis.Recent developments in our globalized era, which is characterized by very-high connectivity in transport and socio-economic fields, mean that an interesting area which is worth exploring are methodological reflections on the feedback relationships between the new patterns of economic activities and the new transport networks, identified by individuals or groups, in different areas of studies, from the point of view of accessibility. This is also the rationale behind the articles included in this Special Issue.
