It is now widely accepted that transport is becoming increasingly unsustainable and that strong policy intervention is required to reduce both the growth in transport demand and the environmental costs of transport. This book challenges conventional approaches to transport by moving away from trend based analysis towards the use of scenarios to identify alternative sustainable transport futures. It both summaries the development of EU transport policy and presents a critique. The policy context is widened to include the global changes taking place in economics, society and technology. It develops new methodologies for policy making for the next 25 years.

Schleicher-Tappeser"It is a new and very interesting attempt to place transport activities within their general and societal framework. It is also very inspiring read...But its very innovative methodological contribution is the most important strength. The tools involved may still be open to improvement, but even as they are, they offer a real breakthrough."
