As global population grows towards 8, then even 9 billion, our transportation system will be overwhelmed unless we adopt sustainable methods at increasing proportions.
The car helped accelerate urban sprawl, and create impassable roadways at peak commute times. It changed urban design and disrupted community life. Now things are changing, especially as the automobile is beginning to be viewed as a service, not right of ownership.
Society can’t afford automobile expansion at the same rate as the past 70 or so years, and in this week’s Regen360 podcast show we talk about these issues and how to create great cities of the future that are pedestrian-oriented, dense and much more sustainable.
