This benefit concentrates on transport as an enabler, and on the integration of land use and transport. It focuses on the importance of destinations, services and/or activities that can be equitably accessed through transport to enable economic and community participation. This benefit may be of particular relevance for people or groups who experience transport disadvantage.

The social and economic benefits of equitable access to transport are part of this benefit, enabling participation in employment, volunteer work, and social and leisure activities, thereby improving the overall wellbeing of communities. The beneficiaries of this benefit are all current and future users of the transport system for whom access allows them to fully participate in life and their community.

Transport investments and programmes that might contribute to this benefit include those that improve access to key social and economic opportunities through education, infrastructure or services, and support alternative means of access or improved proximity to opportunities.

Currently, the primary quantitative measure of this benefit is how long it takes residents to reach key social destinations, such as schools, supermarkets, general practitioners and hospitals, by different modes. The similar measure about economic destinations (employment) can also be used for this benefit. The focus on measurement of destination is unique to this benefit.
