THE IMPLICATIONS OF OIL RESOURCES DEPLETION FOR URBAN PASSENGER TRANSPORT INVESTMENT

An investigation into the implications of energy consideration for long-term urban transport planning is reviewed. The results obtained were reported in a series of working papers on urban transport planning and energy, and a monitoring study of rail commuting on Merseyside with particular reference to the effects of increases in the price of petrol. These working papers are discussed. It is suggested that of the many areas considered for further study, long-term aspects of transport energy should be investigated with a view to developing the techniques employed in the study. For the work into short-term aspects, it is considered that monitoring could be further developed as an addition to the formulation of urban transport policy. /TRRL/
