TRANSPORTATION AND THE ENVIRONMENT - FINDING THE RIGHT BALANCE. IN: 1991 TAC ANNUAL CONFERENCE, PROCEEDINGS. VOLUME 5. SEPTEMBER 15-16, 1991, WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA

This paper examines three key aspects of the environmental issue as it relates to transportation with emphasis on the critical questions that must be addressed in the formulation of a long term strategy. How much progress is necessary and what role is Canada likely to play in the global effort? What are the obstacles to progress? How will the obstacles be overcome including the appropriate roles for government and market oriented solutions? For a variety of reasons, the authors conclude that the extent of change that will be required in societal attitudes towards satisfying mobility needs must be dramatic. Minor adjustments will not suffice. Fundamental changes in travel behaviors will be essential so as to achieve any significant progress.
