Mobility & Accessibility

Cities need space – and people need to access the city. Mobility and accessibility are tied to a range of other choices that affect ecological footprints and nature conservation. How much land will be used, and how much will be left for nature and agriculture? What energy sources will be used and what kinds of emissions into air, water, and soils?



Sustainably from A to B
Transportation is a key issue for ecological sustainability and quality of life. Cities are able to achieve huge gains in both areas through strategies such as car-free and car-restricted areas, expanding public transport, promoting cycling, making the city more compact and pedestrian-friendly, and developing only where sustainable transport is available. The transition from unsustainable patterns of automobile dependence, sprawl, and relying on fossil fuels is being accomplished in a number of ways – reducing the overall costs of transportation to people and the environment.
