The book deals with the future of transport and has two central themes: the need for revolutionising ideas on moving people and goods and the conclusion that there is no single panacea. The author examines a number of new technologies such as driverless vehicles, electronic guidance systems and moving pavements, and discusses ways in which they can be put to use and their limitations. New ways of using existing vehicles - trains, buses, taxis, bicycles and cars - are also considered, together with new concepts of town planning and life-style that could reduce the need to travel. /TRRL/ /TRRL/
