People move about our cities in many ways. Babies are pushed around in buggies, people with disabilities propel themselves around in electric wheelchairs. People walk or ride bicycles; others catch public transport - buses, trams or trains. Many people rely on carbon-based fuels to power the technology that moves them about: they take their own cars. This book looks at the impact of this transport activity on New Zealand cities, how people view the urban fabric they live in, and our cities' resilience.
