Road transportation in Israel today, especially in the large metropolitans, is becoming crowded and dense with serious social, environmental and energetic consequences. Lost time due to traffic jams costs the economy greatly, fuel is wasted and emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases increase. Instead of implementing conventional expansion of infrastructure, which become insufficient very quickly (and encourage the growth in demand for private vehicle use), there is an urgent need for sustainable solutions. This forum discussed the need for behavioral changes, improved urban planning, change in transportation infrastructure, and better pricing that includes externalities. There is a need to change awareness and social norms.
