The True and Total Cost of Transportation
Balance Research studies and reports on the long-term outlook for
transportation and the resources it uses.
Transport (of passengers and general freight) uses excessive resources
because of the apparent, but false, economy of highways. Highway
usage is very attractive because most road space is provided by
governments with little expectation of financial return while the costs
of significant harm and losses due to traffic are borne by the wider
community, rather than the users.
Will governments continue to allow greater subsidy to the transport
modes which use more resources per marginal unit of transport task?
