Turning the Tide - from Cars to Active Transport


posted by Research Admin 1 on 2 May 2019

"This report considers what it would take to move from an incoming tide of cars to an outgoing tide of cars in New Zealand: the current car tide replaced with the healthier and more sustainable active and shared forms of transport. The document is not intended to be a comprehensive review of all of the measures that would support a shift to active transport. However, it does, set out four priority areas and key actions a group of experts have identified as necessary to stem the tide."
