Community-Owned Transport (Hardcover) (Leigh Glover)
About this item
Around the world city and state governments are struggling to fund new public transport infrastructure and to wean themselves off high levels of car use. Increasingly, the challenge is to better use existing infrastructure more efficiently and effectively. Under such constraints, providing additional public transport services without imposing on public funds and offering an alternative to private car use through community-owned transport is of wide appeal. Exploring the idea of public transport systems and services being owned and managed by community groups, rather than governments and corporations, this book suggests such a paradigm shift is a way to promote socially and environmentally sustainable transport. Specifically, community-owned transport is a way to provide mobility to those with poor public transport opportunities, an alternative to private car use, a local focus to transport services, low-carbon mobility and innovation in the transport sector.
