  • A thorough exploration of low carbon mobility transitions from a range of disciplinary and theoretical perspectives;
  • A broad view of low carbon transition across travel, transport, tourism and mobilities studies;
  • A critical exploration of the global, regional and local prospects for low carbon mobility transitions;
  • Illustrating examples of low carbon transition, from leading scholars researching in a wide range of geographic contexts.

Arranged in three interrelated sections; People and Place, Structures in Transition, and Innovations for Low Carbon Mobility, Low Carbon Mobility Transitions presents nineteen theoretically-informed, empirically grounded chapters and case studies that comprehensively address the prospects for global, regional, and local systemic transitions to low carbon mobility. Bringing together the work of leading researchers from 26 universities, research centres and consultancies, spanning six continents, it critically explores the wide-ranging regional contexts in which a low carbon transition has been, is being, or can be achieved. In doing so, it highlights the place-specific, geopolitical and cultural sensitivities of low carbon transitions at national, regional and local (urban) scales. The overlapping roles of technological innovation, behaviour change and policy frameworks are critically examined in this book, providing timely insights into the opportunities for decarbonising the current systems of transport, in order to achieve the radical emissions reductions required to prevent lasting impacts of climate change.

Highlights of the book include:
  • Multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary insights into low carbon mobility transitions;
  • Research-informed chapters and case studies including a range of geographic contexts across the global North and South;
  • New perspectives on the intersecting and overlapping roles of technological innovation, behaviour change and policy frameworks;
  • Expert assessments of systemic low carbon transition.
