Abstract

Transport plays a pivotal role in the dynamics of our society, not only in economic terms but also in a spatial setting. New driving forces such as technologi­cal progress, privatisation and deregulation exert a structuring impact on transport systems and on their related consequences induding environmental sustainability and urban form. The paper presents empirical results from a scenario experiment among Dutch transport experts, in which expected and desired spatial and environ­mental consequences of new transport systems up to the year 2030 are depicted. The paper shows that the probability of achieving the objective of sustainable mobility is rather low.
