Book Description :

Cycling and walking are both essential components in sustainable transport strategy and are becoming an ever more important part of urban planning. There is now a wealth of international experience of how well sustainable planning works in practice and how it can be improved. With a wide range of contributions from America, Australia, Europe as well as the UK, Sustainable transport sums up many of the lessons learnt and how they can be applied in improved planning. Non-motorised transport planning depends on combining improvements to infrastructure with education. There are chapters examining both national strategies and local initiatives in cities around the world, including such topics as changes to existing road infrastructure and the integration of cycling and walking with public transport. Since education is a critical element in sustainable transport planning, contributors also consider such topics as developing healthier travel habits and ways of promoting cycling and walking as alternatives to the car. With its blend of practical experience and suggestions for improvement, Sustainable transport is essential reading for urban planners, environmental groups and those researching transport issues. Comprehensive handbook covering sustainable transport initiatives world wide Focuses on walking and cycling as alternatives to motorised transport systems Presents practical advice on how to encourage sustainable transport schemes

Book Description :

Our automobile culture is devastating for the environment, but private passenger vehicles are unlikely to disappear from our roads anytime soon. Greener cars and fuels will be a necessity for many years to come. Green Transportation Basics is a guide to greening your personal driving habits by dramatically improving the efficiency of an existing vehicle using simple measures such as trip planning and regular maintenance to improve fuel economy. This handy guide also explores the most promising new green cars and trucks, including electric vehicles, hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and natural-gas cars. And it critically examines sustainable fuels including ethanol, biodiesel, straight vegetable oil, hydrogen, and biomethane, evaluating each according to a set of established criteria. Each green fuel source must: Be socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable Have a high net energy yield Be clean, abundant, renewable, and affordable Don't let your dream of greening your transportation idle—Green Transportation Basics will guide you through the myths and misconceptions and provide clear options for the road to a more sustainable future. Dan Chiras is a respected educator and author who has published nearly thirty books on renewable energy and sustainable living, including Power from the Sun and Power from the Wind. He is the director of the Evergreen Institute, where he teaches workshops on green transportation, including green fuels and vehicles and electric car conversion.

Book Description :

Asian Development Bank (ADB) is assisting the development of transport sector in the People's Republic of China since 1986, by providing lending and non-lending support. Considerable progress has been achieved since then. However, with volatile fuel prices and increasing greenhouse emissions, issues of affordability, environmental sustainability and resource optimization are becoming increasingly important. This paper analyses these key issues and recommends a new, target-oriented approach that places energy efficiency, environment, and health at the top of the policy agenda for transport and related sectors at all levels. The paper makes six key recommendations for promoting environmentally sustainable transportation that can be considered by PRC to overcome these challenges.
