This report presents a review of the domestic and international literature on sustainable transportation, and combines this with the results of interviews on sustainable transportation with key governmental and non-governmental organizations. The first chapter summarizes some of the trends that have led researchers and other commentators to conclude that transportation has become unsustainable. it reviews the most serious impacts of unsustainable trends in transportation, including health impacts and global climate change, and also addresses the relative contribution of different modes to the unsustainability of transportation in Canada. Chapter 2 outlines elements of analysis as well as policy and program development, describing broad tools that have been used or considered in policy development for sustainable transportation. Chapter 3 summarizes specific policy options that have been studied and/or implemented in Canada and internationally, and describes associated jurisdictional and timing issues.
