ABSTRACT
This article highlights the Urban Transport Conference which was held in Bristol, England in 2001. The conference looked at many of the main issues facing urban transport. Steven Norris, member of the board of the Transport of London and newly appointed chairman of the national cycling campaign, emphasized that politics and political musings are no help in winning the urban transport argument. The conference opened with David Begg speaking on the delivery of better integration and the reduction of congestion in towns and cities. Jonathan Porritt lamented the fact that Great Britain still had not taken on ideas of best practice advocated by their more experienced European counterparts. Speaker topics over the two days covered many aspects of urban transport and how it can be taken forward. Eric Sampson spoke about the potential role of new technology. William Gard outlined the legal perspective. Tore Hoven spoke about the toll charges implemented by the city of Trondheim, Norway.
