Transforming urban transport: the Ethics and Practices of sustainable Mobility

Edited by Assoc Prof Nicholas Low

Transforming Urban Transport confronts head-on the dilemma faced by a world addicted to automobility. It highlights the danger of continuing along the fossil-fuel path and gives viable technological alternatives which can be deployed to find a solution. Changes in urban mobility and transport require local institutional policy action. To support such action, the book explores new methods of governance of transport in dispersed and concentrated cities, new techniques for assessing transport needs, ways of improving childhood mobility, guidelines for political mobilization, and norms of knowledge sharing. Drawing together leading scholars from different disciplines in Australia, Japan and China, this book provides a unique fusion of Asian and Australasian perspectives and engages with the coming needs of transport planning practitioners in both high density and dispersed cities. Complete with a companion website with a wealth of supporting material around the topic, this is essential read for all students and practitioners of transport planning.
