Encouraging transport alternatives: Good practice in reducing travel

Main Article Content

Sittha Jaensirisak


The amount of travel worldwide has been
increasing steadily. This could be regarded positively
as a reflection of economic growth. However,
it has also resulted in various adverse side-effects,
such as increasing congestion, pollution, accidents
and consumption of land.

A fundamental approach to tackling the
problem is to attempt to reduce the amount of
travel itself. This book demonstrates that travel
reduction can be achieved over a wide range of
circumstances and by various means–through
policies for both restraining car use and promoting
viable alternatives, through land-use planning, and
through technology.
