Build It and Will They Drive? Modelling Light-Duty Vehicle Travel Demand

Does road building induce more people to take to the streets and highways? Is restricting the physical capacity of the road network an effective way to manage light-duty vehicle use? Build It and Will They Drive? Modelling Light-Duty Vehicle Travel Demand looks at the arguments and the questions—and comes up with some surprising answers. It models how wealth and price influence Canada’s per capita light-duty vehicle use, considers the implications for the country’s policy-makers and discusses how socio-economic policy such as road pricing, fuel taxation and urban densification can help meet the challenge of managing light-duty vehicle use in a carbon-constrained world.
