Transportation costs and the impact on the environment

The cost of taking public transport keeps rising while the costs of driving and flying keep falling. A new approach is needed if we're going to encourage people to make low carbon choices. Aiming to find a solution to the problem, Campaign for Better Transport recently commissioned research by Steer Davies Gleave on Transport Costs and Carbon Emissions. This article discusses the results of this research and considers how current transport policy affects people's lives, concluding that policy needs to achieve a more holistic, rebalancing of prices, recognising the different contribution of each transport mode to carbon emissions.
