Abstract: This chapter describes the relationship between transport, mobility and society. This is achieved by means of linking the social dimensions and impact of sustainable transport and mobility with approaches, principles and values of social development. Sustainable social transport and mobility uses resources and people as the unit of analysis. The societal role of transport and mobility is explored through reviewing the connection between social development as underpinned by transport and mobility indicators such as access, quality, quantity, service levels and the mobility needs of different transport modes available in South Africa. In addition, the role that transport and mobility has played in the urban development of South Africa is described. Options and strategies for enhancing the integration of social dimensions in transport and mobility projects, programmes and plans are outlined.
