The chapter continues by presenting the past achievements to date, specifically the different models of sustainable transport analysis, support and implementation. In this vein, the chapter includes representative examples from around the world. Before concluding, the chapter suggests possible alternatives that might positively impact on the future of sustainable transport, perspectives, requirements, models and politico-economic support solutions.
