This chapter builds an argument emphasising the loss of accessibility levels at the local scale in the last decades, as a result of a fixation to improve accessibility through mobility gains. In considering mobility improvement as necessary and even sufficient to enhance accessibility, we have, unwillingly contributed to the loss of accessibility at the local scale, even though accessibility at the regional level might be improving. The chapter sets out the relevance of building awareness on local accessibility levels and their shifts over time, exploring the current main challenges to measuring accessibility at the local level. Special attention is given to need to develop tools which allow for comparison between the local and regional levels, particularly in the absence of a track record of past levels serving as benchmarks.
