Abstract

The current paper represents a part of the obtained results of a wider project financed by “CREAD”. It deals with the problematic of social equity/exclusion in public transport networks using the physical coverage as an indicator to measure it. The case study was conducted in the Wilaya of Batna where 476 questionnaires have been distributed in 31 provinces that have been selected randomly. Researchers have tried to build a social equity/exclusion map of the Wilaya of Batna, by converting the digital outputs into graphical representations using a geographical information system (QGIS). The map has shown that many provinces are suffering from a weak physical coverage of the public transport network mainly in Ein Djasser, Boumia, Djerma, Tilatou and Tigherghar
