Based on Why Travel: Understanding our Need to Move and How it Shapes our Livesby Matthew Niblett and Kris Beuret, this policy briefing covers key messages and policy recommendations around the need to update travel demand analysis and appraisal.

It looks at how in a post-pandemic world we need to be working on how to travel better instead of restricting travel altogether.

The book which the briefing is based on focuses on the motivations that underpin the journeys we make and questions how we can make decisions that improve our travel experiences. Why do we travel, how does it influence our mental wellbeing and how can these be reconciled with challenges such as reducing carbon footprint?
