Twenty-first-century initiatives

It is worth reflecting on a pattern of transport usage in the UK, for example in the second half of the twentieth century (quoted from Solent Transport):

■ Rail passenger kilometres per year have been steady at 30 billion, whereas

■ Car passenger kilometres per year have risen from almost nil to 600 billion.
