The first report of the Commission on Travel Demand was launched on 3rd May.
The report was developed through a 12 month long evidence gathering process drawing on experts from across the UK and internationally. It demonstrates that the assumptions, developed during decades of planning for growing car ownership, which underpinned our understanding of travel demand growth are now limited and sometimes wrong.
The Commission is chaired by Professor Greg Marsden from the University of Leeds and its other members are John Dales (Director of Urban Movement), Professor Peter Jones (University College London), Elaine Seagriff (Jacobs) and Dr Nicola Spurling (Lancaster University).
