The Road to Sustainable Travel: The role of visions, forecasts and pathways

Briefings and reports

Visions of the future of personal mobility, as seen in forecasts, roadmaps and pathways written by and for policymakers and the automotive industry, tend to assume little change in how we get around beyond switching to new types of cars. This briefing looks at the role of forecasting, pathways and scenarios in the innovation process, highlighting some of the shortcomings of current scenarios and forecasting studies that have been carried out in the UK. Finally, it provides some recommendations on how they might be remedied.
