Product Description


A hugely authoritative book on a hugely important subject.
–Peter Hall, University College London, UCL

While transport’s contribution to climate change is of global importance, it needs to be addressed at the city or metropolitan scale. Yet cities differ, precluding easy one-size-fits-all solutions. By taking a scenario approach to a wide variety of cities this highly readable book provides insights to what can be done and how in a comprehensive manner. It is a major contribution, of interest to academics and practitioners alike.
–Eran Feitelson, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel

Quirky, intriguing, confronting stories of how the world's cities are slipping further into car dependence – and some possible solutions.
–Peter Newman, Curtin University Sustainability Policy (CUSP) Institute, Australia

This fantastically illustrated book is a joy to read and adds to other books on sustainable transport in its case based focus on the instrumental role that transport can and should play in the sustainable city. The scenarios developed for London, Oxfordshire, Delhi, Jinan and Auckland illustrate that different futures, away from the car, are possible, and that a 0.5 tCO2 per capita target can be achieved in different contexts. A must for everyone looking for inspiration to design sustainable travel solutions!
Bert van Wee, Delft University of Technology and Scientific Director of TRAIL research school, the Netherlands
