This book looks forward to the impact of rising fuel prices on low-income earners and their access to employment. Access to employment and public transport are both interrelated as access to efficient and effective public transport facilitates access to employment more so in the event of high private transport costs. This book attempts to unravel the complex relations between geographical distribution of low socio-economic groups, accessibility and their ability to actively participate in the regional economy. Although this research was conducted in Auckland, it is applicable to any other city that lacks the vital transportation links connecting people to places of work, especially those on low incomes. This work would be helpful for anyone working on developing transport policy, social development policy, community development projects, state housing projects and anyone else who has an interest in the pressing issue of rising fuel prices and its impacts.
