This is the second in a series of reports to be produced by the Transport Visions Network. The Network is a novel venture to project the views of young professionals into the debate concerning the future of transport and its role in society. It is comprised of individuals who are aged 35 or under from universities, consultancies and public authorities both in the UK and overseas.
This report considers the nature of local travel and how it may be influenced. The report provides a Network perspective on local travel in the form of a 'Toolkit for Local Travel'. The Toolkit is a collection of concepts and ideas associated with the Network's own transportation requirements described in its second report. As such the Toolkit represents a shopping list rather than a recipe for success. It should not be assumed that all Toolkit components are complementary to one another.
The emphasis upon local travel rather than local transport reflects the Network's aim to look at the behavioural and social factors that give rise to and influence decisions concerning local travel. The Network believes that addressing these issues is a fundamental prerequisite to achieving effective transport solutions. In essence, we need to fully consider why we travel locally in the ways that we do, before we can address how we can travel locally in a more sustainable fashion.
