Handbook of Sustainable Travel

This book explores the sustainability of personal travel and transportation systems from social, economic, and environmental points of view. Underlying mechanisms and potential solutions towards more sustainable transportation are examined. Research on travel behavior has been gathered from a variety of disciplines and is presented in four parts. Part I introduces the subject and reviews historical and future trends in travel, the role of travel, and traveler satisfaction. Part II focuses on the economic and psychological motives for dependence on car use as a primary mode of travel and how travel behavior changes might be made. Part III discusses travel and social sustainability, addressing the social costs or benefits of environmentally sustainable transportation measures. Part IV presents future sustainable travel modes and alternatives, including public and nonmotorized transportation.
