CHAPTER 18: ALTERNATIVE POLICIES FOR REDUCING DEPENDENCE ON THE CAR. FROM THE GREENING OF URBAN TRANSPORT, EDITION 2.

This chapter offers possible solutions for decreasing automobile use in Great Britain. Some of these are: (1) the street fleet -- a fleet of cars for hire in the street; (2) discounts for taxis and public transport; (3) improved information; (4) same-day delivery; (5) expanded door-step delivery services; (6) traffic calming -- the icing on the cake. For any solutions to actually work, it would be essential to prioritize public transport so that those who had foregone personal car use could get around only cheaply, but quickly too.
