Article by Unknown Auther -‘The electric car — a green transport revolution in the making?’ (Last modified – Oct 12, 2011)
This article is about looking at the way of electric technology within cars and looking at how it could be possible for a electric car to not be introduced as a new type of fuel but a complete new technology. It looks at the differences of electric to normal fuels but not only lists the advantages of an electric car but also the disadvantages. One of the disadvantages that has been listed is that the energy to power electric cars won’t necessarily come from green energy and could still be produced in other ways. This article is relevant because it presents new ideas for transport that could be changed to make it more suitable for the environment and also cost effective for traveling workmen.

Article by Bangalore -‘Revamp transport to ensure better public health’ (Last modified – Oct 29, 2012)
This article looks at the idea of how unclean public transport can cause bad health from the transferring of germs. This mainly looks at the idea that bad air circulation on public transport can cause a transfer of germs. This is something that could be looked at because less people would be wanting to use public transport if they know it is going to constantly make them ill. Also looking at the idea of anyone can travel within public transport so the idea if a healthcare worker had to be exposed to the germs on public transport is quite bad because it can cause spreading of disease within delicate health workplaces.

The city has had a cycling boom because of the way cycling was promoted back in 2005. This article relates to our project because of the points put across in that bigger cites don’t really have cyclists because of the way they are viewed by road users and this could be something to look at on the way cycling is a green way of travel and should be considered.
