Promoting Walking and Cycling: New Perspectives on Sustainable Travel

This book provides very important information for planners and policy makers who are developing and implementing transport policies at both national and local levels. The book is also helpful for researchers and students in the fields of mobility, transport, sustainability and urban planning. The need to develop more sustainable urban mobility is at the forefront of energy and environmental policies and this has major implications for the planning of cities and for the structure of economy and society. Promoting walking and cycling proposes solutions to one of the most pressing problems in British transport planning. However, most people in the region feel either unable or unwilling to incorporate travel by foot or bike into their everyday journeys. This book uses innovative quantitative and qualitative research methods to examine why so many people fail to travel in ways that are deemed by most to be desirable. The book proposes international and historical evidence-based policy solutions that could increase levels of walking and cycling substantially throughout the world.
