Understanding the requirements and barriers for modal shift, away from cars to alternative modes of transport, in the UK
Climate Change Committee
There are three key questions that this research should aim to answer: What types of intervention (or packages of interventions) have been effective at reducing traffic in the past, in the UK and globally, and what principles can we learn from these to inform effective future action? This should aim to understand what sorts of interventions could be put in place to build on these principles and effectively reduce traffic/car travel. For example, is there evidence that free or heavily subsidised public transport effects a large mode shift? How extensive do cycle networks need to be to achieve significant bike mode share? How different is the performance of public transport in places with more expensive car-based mobility (e.g. workplace parking levy, road pricing or other restrictive measures)? What opportunities are there opening up from emerging technologies e.g. e-scooters and ride-sharing apps and what initiatives might enable greater sharing of cars? What are the...
