THE URBAN TRANSPORT DILEMMA

This paper examines methods which could reduce the present undue dependence on the private vehicle for urban travel in New Zealand. In addition to engineering, social and political issues are discussed. Reference is made to the importance of public participation in town planning objectives. Solutions discussed include radial and inter-suburban bus routes, and the promotion of walking and cycling as urban travel modes, over distances of up to 1800 M and 2 to 3 km respectively. /TRRL/
