One large component of sustainable urban transport focuses on the promotion and enhancement of modes that are friendly to the environment, people and economy. Such modes are public transport, walking and cycling. The latter two are collectively called non-motorised transport. A greater modal share of these sustainable modes directly implies reduced air-pollution, traffic congestion, clean and safe cities and improved liveability. Hence, this theme provides the basic material that is required for the policy-makers to make sustainable choices for their city transport.
