Chapter 1: "transport technology and the changing role of inner city areas: an historical perspective" studies the complexity of transport/urban form relationship in the core-dominated city and the dispersed city. Chapter 2: "energy constraints and changing technology: implications for inner city areas" examines the impact of energy constraints on mode of travel and total transport consumption. Recommendations for future research are put forward and evolution in transport technology is discussed. In chapter 3: "transport problems of inner city residents", a study is conducted of the recent trends in travel to work within British cities (changing pattern and length of travel-to-work trips, and changes in the mode of travel to work), mobility constraints upon low skilled workers, accessibility to work problems of inner city residents. The latter point is considered in the light of the American and British context. Chapter 4 considers the past, present and future role of transport planning and pricing policies in influencing urban spatial organization. (TRRL)
