THE POTENTIAL FOR THE APPLICATION OF POLICIES TO INFLUENCE URBAN CAR TRAVEL DEMAND

In a previous paper published in TPS Vol 2:4 (IRRD 873303), the results of the authors' analysis of changing travel patterns and their relationship with land use characteristics in a selection of 31 cities worldwide were presented. That paper addressed the question of whether these patterns were sustainable in either the global or local context. In this paper the authors attempt to develop the message of that analysis by outlining those policy instruments with the capability of influencing urban travel demand. They draw not only on the global cities study (Newman and Kenworthy, 1989), but also on other experience from cities that have shown some indications that reversing the patterns of car dependence is possible, especially when land use patterns are part of the formula.
