Our dependence on cars is a huge problem - one of the most difficult facing planners and city authorities as well as residents and commuters - but the authors of this work argue that it can be overcome and a new form of urban organization developed. The text examines the trends which shape global cities and establishes transport, economic and cultural priorities within this framework. With profiles of successful working examples from across the globe, it shows how we can overcome automobile dependence and successfully tackle issues on the sustainability agenda. It provides a resource for urban and transport planners as well as students and researchers.
