The book presents a detailed case for the transformation of mobility. After over a century of rapid growth in distances travelled and the multiplication of expensive infrastructure (roads, high speed rail, airports) we have passed a tipping point. Our transport systems globally and regionally now account for millions of deaths each year (air pollution and crashes), eye-wateringly large subsidies and demands on public funds and have created unfriendly, unpleasant spaces that damage community life and foster obesity. The time has come for a new transport paradigm and one that is ethical, child-friendly and nurturing of local economic vitality and resilience. The book sets out how this can be done and focusses on the “three zeroes”. We can have all the advantages of gaining high quality access to our chosen destinations but in future we will do this with zero deaths in road traffic, zero air pollution from traffic sources and zero greenhouse gas emissions to counter climate change threats.
