This study explores high school students' aspirations for car-based transportation. In spite of the spotlight on sustainability, the researcers found that young people continue to aspire to own private vehicles. "Such findings have important implications for interventions to increase non-motorised mobilities, and reduce dependence on private vehicles across the transport system."
