Achieving Sustainable Accessibility: An Evaluation of Policy Measures in the Amsterdam Area
Abstract:Three approaches to the study and framing of sustainability policies: the approach of the transportation planner; that of the transport economist; and that of the urban and regional planner, are discussed. The design principles involved in the last approach, whose aim is sustainable accessibility, are evaluated for the case of Amsterdam. This shows that design principles are more important than the pursuit of a particular policy and that the city's urban developments can be regarded as relatively sustainable.
