Webinar 2: Reducing Car Dependency Outside Cities

Tuesday 18th October 2022 | 12 – 1.15pm

About this event

Although there has been much attention on reducing car dependency in cities and major urban areas with Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, School Streets and car-free cities, there is less focus on how to reduce car dependency in suburban or rural areas. These areas often lack good public transport alternatives or walking/ cycling infrastructure, and people living or working in these areas often have no choice but to drive, often longer distances. But to decarbonise transport and for a better quality of life we need to reduce car dependency in all areas. This webinar will discuss the difficulties of reducing car dependency outside cities and some possible solutions.

This is the second in a new series of webinars showcasing the work funded by the Foundation for Integrated Transport (FIT) <https://integratedtransport.co.uk/>. This webinar includes presentations from FIT Fellows Beate Kubitz and John Austin, and a panel discussion (panellists to be confirmed), chaired by FIT Board Chair, Stephen Joseph.
