Exploring the need for a sustainable transport paradigm, which has been sought after by local and national authorities internationally over the last 30 years, this illuminating and timely Handbook offers insights into how this can be secured more broadly and what it may involve, as well as the challenges that the sustainable transport approach faces.
Drawing on a wide range of research and relevant case studies that showcase where the principles of sustainable transport have been, or could be, implemented, the Handbook offers readers a holistic understanding of the paradigm. Contributions showcase the evidence of the continued need for a sustainable transport approach, analyse its core principles, and, finally, discuss what it will take to achieve implementation, considering aspects such as behaviour change, accessibility, governance and politics.
Offering a comprehensive overview across the many dimensions of sustainable transport, this Handbook will be an indispensable resource for transport, planning and urban studies scholars. It will also be a useful guide for planners and policy makers looking for advice to advance future practice.
