Accessibility appears to be a useful tool for best practice and planning. In this context, a line of research is clearly devoted to the accessibility of urban systems. There is an interesting specialization in the scientific literature on accessibility in an urban setting, studying the influences of land-use policy and public transport system development on their accessibility to workers. Many investigations relate accessibility to the following urban public goods: public spaces, opportunities of access to space and time for one or multiple persons, metro systems, labor markets, streets, services, and green spaces. Starting from the above considerations, reflections on the role of accessibility in the analysis and planning of urban settlements certainly remain valid arguments that are worth exploring.

Abstract

Accessibility appears to be a useful tool for best practice and planning. In this context, a line of research is clearly devoted to the accessibility of urban systems. There is an interesting specialization in the scientific literature on accessibility in an urban setting, studying the influences of land-use policy and public transport system development on their accessibility to workers. Many investigations relate accessibility to the following urban public goods: public spaces, opportunities of access to space and time for one or multiple persons, metro systems, labor markets, streets, services, and green spaces. Starting from the above considerations, reflections on the role of accessibility in the analysis and planning of urban settlements certainly remain valid arguments that are worth exploring. This is the rationale which characterizes the articles included in this Special Issue.
