Understanding that most jobs are outside the city centre is vital, because the challenges they present for transport infrastructure policy are more complex and more politically difficult
The likelihood of suffering a serious injury while cycling on urban roads is extremely low, but it seems our tolerance for risk is even lower
We make a vanishingly small percentage of short trips by public transport and it's mostly because we prefer the alternatives for this sort of travel. Transit's strengths lie elsewhere
