Abstract

The objective of the paper is, first, to identify the principles of justice that guide the policy domains of health care, education and housing, and, second, to explore what lessons could be drawn for the domain of transportation. Like policies in the three other domains, interventions in the transportation system aim to provide citizens with an essential service. Not all households are able to purchase an adequate share of the relevant service at the marktplace. An explicit and systemic comparison of the equity principles underpinning these policy domains is thus expected to deliver new insights regarding the transportation domain.

As a hypothesis we expect that equity principles in a policy domain depend to a large part on "statistics"; when a majority of households can pay a service themselves, households unable to purchase the service in the marketplace receive a substantially lower level of service through government interventions than that majority.
