'SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT' has recently been added to the transport planner's lexicon - but what does it mean and will practicing it make a difference?
This is the thrust of a open meeting organised by the Transport Planning Society, to be held at the ICE tonight.
The meaning of sustainability has shifted over the past couple of decades, taking on explicitly environmental connotations. It is now defined as 'capable of being maintained at a steady level without exhausting natural resources or causing severe ecological damage'.
How this should be interpreted and applied to the UK's transport systems is open to hot debate. The meeting is free to members.

The meeting starts at 2pm.
