Successful and wealthy cities are usually associated with high levels of automobile use and are struggling to cope with the large economic, social and environmental costs this brings. This paper shows how such cities do not need to depend on high levels of private automobile use and describes how automobile dependence has been reduced in many of the most successful cities in the North and kept relatively low in some of the wealthiest cities in the South.
