Schaeffer and Elliott Sclar, Columbia University, USA The economic crisis in urban transportation has its roots in the policy that the cost of transportation, like those of other market products, should be borne by the user.

The crucial assumption in this supply relationship is that prices must rise to induce sellers to supply larger quantities of a good or service to the market, or that, in a competitive market, sellers will at any price bring to the market all of the goods or services they can sell at a profit. A competitive market by definition means there are many buyers and sellers, with ease of entry and exit to the market, and that no individual buyer or seller is large enough to influence the market. Thus, each seller will be able to sell all he can supply at the going price.

Often, these frequently contradictory forces will converge on dynamic urban space, where the economic and social need for transport is at its most intense, and where the environmental consequences may be most keenly felt. We can summarise these forces as follows: 1. Transport continues to be a key component of the modernist project and essential to assist in capitalist accumulation. 2. Yet late modernity has seen a strong backlash against the excesses of the growth in motorised transport. 3. This and the emerging sustainable development agenda has seen pressure applied to authorities to reduce traffic growth and promote less environmentally-damaging modes.
