Abstract

As articulated in the very first issue of the Journal of Transport & Health, the journal is dedicated to understanding how transport affects health and inequalities with the intention to learn from a range of countries and experiences (Mindell, 2014). To specifically highlight current barriers and opportunities towards advancing health equity, we planned this special issue: “Health equity, social inclusion, and mobility”. In 2020 the COVID-19 pandemic put health equity and mobility at the forefront as hypermobility played a role in the spread of COVID-19 and early lock-downs and reduced mobility helped slow the spread of disease in some locations (Musselwhite et al., 2020, 2021). Disparities in health equity, social inclusion and mobility identified in transport and health were further revealed during the pandemic.
