Input Needed / Awesome Prize Awarded - What is Sustainable Transportation?

Thank you to all who participated, and the winner will be announced soon.


What does that term mean?

Currently, no such definition of sustainable transportation exist, and this is where I am asking for your help.

Many turn to, and integrate the World Commission on Environment and Development's (a.k.a., "Brundtland Commission") 1987 definition of sustainable development: "Development which meets the needs of current generations without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."  

While the Brundtland Commission's denotation provides a universal framework for sustainable applications, I am looking for a more-precise definition, respective of transportation and related systems.

Here is were you come in...

Message me on Twitter (@transportica), or contact me via TransportiCA's "Comment Form" on the front-page (bottom left), sending me your idea of sustainable transportation.

While TransportiCA does utilize a definition found on the front-page, I am looking if there are elements missing; thereby, providing greater substance and applicability to such systems of transportation.

Your definition will be reviewed by a mixture of transportation academics, aficionados and professionals.  If your submission is chosen, you will receive an autographed copy of the best-seller "Sustainable Transportation Planning: Tools for Creating Vibrant, Healthy, and Resilient Communities" by internationally-renowned transportation and urban planner Jeffery Tumlin. (Pictured right.)

Submissions will be accepted until 23:59 of Thursday, 30 June 2016.  Definitions will be reviewed early-July, with award notification occurring late-July 2016.  This contest is not limited to only submissions from the United States; we all benefit from global perspectives.  (However, if you live in the deep tundra of the Arctic, I cannot guarantee overnight express...)

Thank you for your time, and best of luck!

Greg Justice.
