Accelerating the transition towards sustainable mobility: what are the right signals and the right messages?

This paper discusses four innovative transport solutions and strategiesthat have the potential to bring about this revolution in the way we live. The four examples are: 1. the London and Stockholm congestion charge; 2. the London Low Emission vehicle policy; 3. the Swedish Vision Zero road safety policy; 4. the Bogota project. In passing it shows that many cities around the world have achieved a high standard of living and liveability in close harmony with low levels of car use, high levels of walking and cycling and relative independence from oil depletion concerns.
