Public Transport, Social Inclusion and Urban Renewal

2008 - Volume 11 Number 7

A car dominated transport system is a recipe for disaster. They are expensive, unhealthy and dangerous.

Without a total rethink and dramatic changes our cities risk economic and environmental collapse. People are pushed into private vehicles. Building more freeways is seen a solution.

Minimal planning or spending has not gone into healthier alternatives such a cycling and walking. There are rising health costs due to toxic gas and particle emissions; medical costs due to obesity; and the cost associated with accidents. The threat from greenhouse gas emissions to global warming might be the greatest cost.
