Planning Sustainable Transport free pdf Transport choices must be changed if we are to cope with sustainability and climate change but that may only be done if we understand how the whole transport system works -- how the different modes are used in combination, not as simple alternative. There are never straightforward choices between one mode and another: door-to-door movements of both people and freight use combinations of modes. The majority of personal journeys begin and end by foot- parking places have to be found- changes made from bus to train- freight has to be loaded and handled. All these short, ancillary segments are the source of considerable inconvenience, delay and cost and are significant elements in transport choice. Journeys begin and end at particular addresses. The land-use at those addresses are a major determinant of the nature and extent of the demand for transport and so managing land-use has to be an element of any sustainable transport policy. Hence any solution to transport sustainability starts with transport planning. This book offers a thoughtful critique of existing methodology and policy, raising issues, providing facts, explaining linkages and stimulating debate.
