In The End of Automobile Dependence, Newman and Kenworthy look at how we can accelerate a planning approach to design urban transportation systems that can function reliably and conveniently with alternative modes. They show how cars can play a reduced and more manageable role. The authors examine the rise and fall of automobile dependence using updated data on 44 global cities to better understand how to facilitate and guide cities toward sustainable outcomes.
