Final Report
Summary:
In order to go beyond the common economic views, focus is laid on political and social issues in relation to the momentum of car use. This is motivated by the perceived need of transport research to explore social change as to provide for safe, efficient, and environmentally sound transport facilities and to opt for equal and individual access as well as social development. The notions of diversity and specificity (in contrast the frequently discussed universal or generic conditions) in the cities of Santiago, Copenhagen and New Delhi are used as examples highlighting the development at three different levels of society: the national, city level and user level.
