Travel is central to our lives. Decisions about where and how we live and work depend crucially on the possibilities for daily travel. Over the past two centuries, the development of transport technologies has transformed our lives by allowing us to travel faster than walking pace. But this era of ever-faster travel has come to an end. Car use has reached its peak and is indeed declining in the most dynamic large cities, where digital technologies seem more attractive than clunky cars. This book offers a comprehensive account, based on the author’s research, of why and how we travel, and what is changing as populations grow and technologies develop.
