Template for Sustainable Transportation
By Jean Brittingham and Donald Forbes, 2004
“Communities all over the developed world struggle with solving transportation problems. The developing world aspires to have such problems.”
Communities all over the developed world struggle with solving transportation problems. The developing world aspires to have such problems. But when one looks at the long term future, it is clear that transportation solutions that emerged in the 20th Century are not workable, either in terms of transportation itself, or in terms of negative consequences for the environment. Yet people and goods must move and will move, in order for the business of living to go on. How might we create an approach to transportation that succeeds in moving people and goods, while at the same time is sustainable in terms of the social and natural environments. Jean Brittingham and Don Forbes, writing a white paper for the CH2M Hill company, provide an excellent response to these questions. I had the pleasure of working with them on a project in 2003 to assist the state of Idaho in creating a 30-year vision for transportation.
