An article on the Scottish Parliament’s website, which talks about the success of Walkit.com, the walking route planner website, in encouraging people to shift to walking as a mode of transport. Lots of quotes from Jamie Wallace, Walkit.com founder, but little hard evidence of how much modal shift is achieved. Perhaps a candidate for a research project – there must be some student who needs a thesis or dissertation topic.
