In the last weeks the editor of World Streets was asked to provide writtentestimony and evidence in answer to a "Call for Evidence" for the UK Houseof Lords Science and Technology Select Committee on the subject of "Behaviour Change
Travel-Mode Choice Interventions to Reduce Car Usein Towns and Cities". As can happen in these things, in my remarks I movedaway from the chosen topic (instruments for behaviour change), on the grounds that other morefundamental work was needed to be done first.
Sustainable transport cannot be separated from sustainable cities. Norsustainable cities from sustainable lives. Here is a small project fromSweden that takes as its goal to teach people how to balance and movesafely around on abike. But who in Sweden cannot climb on a cycle without a thought and toddle off? Well, among others immigrant women coming from Africa andthe Middle East who find themselves living in this very different culture in which they are free tocycle like everyone else.
On a cold gray Paris winter day Ms Lesley Brown, editor of  Mobility magazine, came to World Streets to interview the editor about his oft noisily stated viewson the importance of sharing in the future of the transport sector. Her articlemade it into the pages of Mobility on 20 January, which you can read in theoriginal here or just below.

In yesterday's feature which was intended to inform the exchanges at this week's TRB session onthe creation of a continuing program to support and expandridesharing as a central sustainable transport policy, the point ismade that the project should concentrate whatever resources it canstump up on ridesharing - as opposed to traditional public transportwhich has its own institutional and support system (for better orworse) while ridesharing from a policy and institutional perspective isstill an orphan. But Simon Norton begs to differ
