This paper considers how changes in the fabric of society and its values, a subject usually considered to be outside the conventional scope of the transport profession, can have a profound impact on travel demand. The paper stems from the Transport Visions Network, a unique activity involving young professionals from academia, consultancy and government. It raises awareness of the diversity of factors that influence travel and transport. The paper offers an overview of existing trends and projections for the future before presenting a series of different future scenarios. Suggestions on the consequences for transport are then put forward.
