This chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about the developments in the transport sector in Great Britain. The book critically analyses transport developments in the UK in the 10 years following the publication of A New Deal for Transport in 1998. It argues that people should pay the true external costs of their travel choices, transport policy should reduce the need for mobility through active planning and management, and the government should ensure that regulation and concerted investment produces excellent infrastructure and service provision.
