The purpose of this project has been to gain more knowledge on the relationship between social sustainability, accessibility and mobility outside of the large city regions in Norway. We have used data from the National Travel Survey (NTS) and Viken and Oslo counties as a case. The results show that the population outside of the large cities are prone to a double vulnerability related to accessibility and mobility. First, accessibility to the labor market and other services is lower in these places. Second, a relatively higher share of the population (outside of the cities) are of lower income and lack flexible working hours. Because of this, we see a slightly higher chance of transport poverty, i.e. less opportunity to participate in society due to fewer mobility options.
