Future Isn't What It Used To Be - Changing Trends and Their Implications For Transport Planning

This paper examines demographic, economic and market trends that affect travel demand, and their implications for transport planning. Motorized mobility grew tremendously during the Twentieth Century, but the factors that caused this growth are unlikely to continue. Per capita vehicle ownership and mileage have started to decline in the U.S., while demand for alternatives such as walking, cycling, public transit and telework is increasing. This indicates that future transport demand will be increasingly diverse.
