Oil depletion is outlined as a process which needs to be accommodated in the worlds' cities over the next 40 to 50 years. Due to the timescales in replacing urban structures it is essential to start the process now. The huge variation in petrol use that is found in a global sample of cities, and their different transport and land-use patterns provide the basis for policy directions. Examples of successful implementation of such policies and their benefits are given.
