Between Public and Private Transport – Professor Graham Parkhurst


Collective Mobility Solutions as the Key to Increasing Sustainability

The current transport debate is centred around the car, electric or other fuels for the car, and conventional public transport with fixed routes and fixed timetables. Professor Parkhurst argues that none of these approaches are likely to address the situation we face today, of energy scarcity and limited public funding. A more realistic alternative is collective mobility, where public and private transport are combined with demand-response services such as car clubs, car pooling, bike hire and taxi buses. It offers the potential to support rapid change towards greater efficiency without intensifying socioeconomic shock.
