This text focuses on the twin transition toward environmentally sustainable mobility and mobility justice. The concept of sustainability generally encompasses three pillars: ecological, economic, and
social. Transport infrastructures have an impact both on the ecoclimatological arena (e.g. “carbon” footprint, greenhouse gas emissions, habitat destruction) and on the socio-economic arena (e.g.
equity, democracy, economic development). The term “mobility justice” highlights the structurally distributed class and racial inequalities in motility—defined as the potential for mobility—which is a determinant of the fundamental human rights of mobility access and self-determination of movement.

Ce texte traite de la double transition qui devrait conduire à une mobi-lité durable et juste. Le concept de durabilité s’appuie en général surtrois piliers : l’écologie, l’économie et le social. Les infrastructures detransport ont un impact à la fois dans le champ éco-climatologique (parexemple, l’empreinte « carbone », les émissions de gaz à effet de serre,la destruction de l’habitat) et dans le champ socio-économique (parexemple, l’équité, la démocratie, le développement économique). Leterme de «mobilité juste» met en lumière les inégalités structurelles declasses et de races dans le domaine de la motilité – définie comme lepotentiel de mobilité – qui est un déterminant de ces deux droits humainsfondamentaux que sont l’accès à la mobilité et la libre détermination deses déplacements. Mobilité durable et mobilité juste sont interdépen-dantes et toutes deux essentielles à la capacité d’adaptation future des corri-dors de transport. Du fait de la domination actuelle du système demobilité automobile, la transition complète ne pourra avoir lieu quelorsque nous aurons simultanément résolu les problèmes d’inégalitéssociales qui alimentent la non-durabilité du système actuel et commencéà promouvoir une mobilité juste, partie intégrante de la durabilité. Cettedouble transition est nécessaire pour favoriser la résilience face au chan-
This text focuses on the twin transition toward environmentallysustainable mobility and mobility justice. The concept of sustaina-bility generally encompasses three pillars: ecological, economic, andsocial. Transport infrastructures have an impact both on the eco-climatological arena (e.g. “carbon” footprint, greenhouse gas emis-sions, habitat destruction) and on the socio-economic arena (e.g.equity, democracy, economic development). The term “mobility justice” highlights the structurally distributed class and racial inequa-lities in motility—defined as the potential for mobility—which is adeterminant of the fundamental human rights of mobility access andself-determination of movement. Both sustainable mobility and mobi-lity justice are crucial to the resilience of transportation corridorsin the future, and the two are interconnected. A full transition awayfrom the currently dominant automobility system will only takeplace when we simultaneously address the issues of social inequalitythat underpin the un-sustainability of the current system, and beginto promote mobility justice as integral to sustainability. Such a doubletransition is necessary to promote resilience in the face of climatechange and disasters.
