Sustainable Transport

Sustainable Transport refers to any means of transport with low impact on the environment and low consumption of non-renewable resources, and includes walking and cycling, electric or low emission motor vehicles, car sharing, bus, coach and rail transport (preferably electric or low emission).

It also includes building or protecting appropriate transport systems, and planning and designing new or altered developments to cater as fully as possible for the most sustainable access and transport means.

While there are a number of definitions and uses of the terms Sustainable Transport, Sustainable Transport Systems and Sustainable Cities, the objective in all cases is to reduce the consumption of non-renewable fuel and other resources, reduce CO2 output, reduce congestion and improve the environment.

Both John Elliott and Chris Veasey have been working in this field since the mid 1970s and JEC specialises in these areas. The Elliott Veasey consultancy has built up over the years a unique knowledge and understanding of all the mechanisms which work to deliver Sustainable Transport.
