Are governments trying to 'get us out of our cars'?

Is better public transport the solution to congestion in cities?

Does Britain have a shortage of family housing?

Some of the conclusions are surprising: improvements to roads or public transport make little difference to urban congestion and if we want to make our transport more sustainable we must save green fields and house more people in our cities.
