Making Urban Transport Sustainable

Nicholas Low,

Making Urban Transport Sustainable
 
 
Urban transport has become a global issue because transport in one city affects the future of all cities. Governments are building transport systems designed to encourage more travel - when we need less. The era of cheap oil is ending. The atmosphere is warming. Cities of developing nations cannot survive the pollution from road vehicles. Alternative technologies will help but by themselves they will not save urban environments from further degradation.

In Making Urban Transport Sustainable, expert contributors view these issues from different perspectives and discuss what can and must be done to address the problem. This discussion presents a worldwide perspective, bringing together expert views on technology, fuel, society, the environment and transport.

Old habits are changing. People want better cities representing their real needs. Adaptation by consumers and planning institutions to the new reality of limits to transport is slowly evolving and this book is a valuable contribution to the debate.
