Transport legacy of mega-events and the redistribution of accessibility to urban destination / Rafael H.M. Pereira

Article

Pereira, Rafael H.M.

Local governments increasingly justify the hosting of mega-events because of their legacy value, assuming that all local residents benefit from those events. Yet, little attention has been paid to the distributive question of who benefits from the transport legacy left by those events. This paper reflects on the delimitation of transport legacies and its social impacts in terms of how such developments can reshape urban accessibility to opportunities. It analyses the transformation in the transport system of Rio de Janeiro in preparation for the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games.
