Transportation Transformation: Rethink and Repurpose

By Andrew Cuthbert

It is by no means a new idea that car travel and dependency is bad for the environment, health and a host of other derivatives. But as life goes on and the pace of change seems to only move at a crawl, it can be hard to find alternative transport methods and hang up your keys. Finding alternatives is what Transportation Transformations: Building Complete Communities and a Zero Emission Transportation System is all about. As part of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives Climate Justice Project, a group of experts—Patrick Condon, Eric Doherty, Kari Dow, Marc Lee, Gordon Price—took a practical look at what transportation options exist, why they exist, and what it might take to make them better. Published just over a year ago, Transportation Transformations outlines an ambitious plan for the transformation of our transportation system that would be possible to implement within one generation, using a few simple concepts. As such, it is still extremely relevant and worth looking at more closely.
