Abstract

This paper sets out eight key contentions about the need to re-think transport policy that emerged from three years of quantitative and qualitative research into people’s travel practices. Based on these contentions we suggest the need for a ‘toolkit’ to be assembled to take a new approach to enabling a transition to the wider use of low carbon mobility. This approach would be centred around evidence that there is much wider variation and flexibility in people’s travel patterns than has previously been recognised. Cultivation of this could allow sustainable transport policy, particularly at a local level, to set ambitious but achievable goals that aim to get more people, travelling by non-car modes more of the time, rather than seeking to achieve complete changes in travel practices all of the time.
