The Trinity of Walking, Cycling and Public Transportation Must Be at the Heart of Ecological Transition Policies

Friday 26 November 2021

While emissions from the transportation sector remain at a very high level, all hopes are currently pinned on the “magic trio” of electric cars, shared cars, and connected cars, which are soon to become “autonomous.” However, everything suggests that this focus on cars will be insufficient, considering that their rebound effects and various nuisances (consumption of space, transformation of land through infrastructure and parking lots, direct and indirect pollution, etc.) are largely underestimated. Consequently, a different trio will be necessary – walking, cycling, and public transportation – when it comes to creating new synergies.
