Unless we radically decarbonise our transport system, we cannot build a just post-carbon society.
But rapid decarbonisation won’t be achieved without re-imagining how we move and connect. The future will be different.
This report sets out the contours of an alternative vision for transport: public focused, multi-modal, and zero carbon. It sets out how London could become a private car free-zone by 2030 and the multiple benefits that would generate, alongside a strategy for rapidly improving connectivity, affordability, and quality of low carbon travel across the rest of the UK, including new powers and funding to deliver a better, net-zero transport system.
