Greening suburban mobility in low-density cities will require a step change in both the demand and supply sides of urban travel. Supply-side innovation is critical in order that the opportunities and alternatives are established for car-dependent suburban residents to embrace more effective forms of active, low carbon travel. This chapter provides a high-level roadmap of the innovations and planning strategies required for a low carbon transition in each of the key supply-side arenas of urban transport.
