The journal has set up a partnership with the California based organisation (TCSC). This arrangement will strengthen our North American links, attract a wider variety of articles from this part of the world and support each other in the pursuit of our very similar objectives.
In addition we are very pleased indeed to announce that we have received a small grant from the Helen and William Mazer Foundation in New Jersey in the USA and this grant will help us to improve our web presence
We are very grateful indeed for their financial support.

Equally we felt the need to have a link with the US based policy-oriented TCSC to bring a strong North American dimension to our well-established links with European, Indian and Australian organisations. The TCSC mission statement strongly resonates with our own objectives:
Our aim is to advance understanding and support for sustainable transportation as an essential component of livable communities and cities. The Institute studies and evaluates the ways and means of creating more life-affirming transportation systems and disseminates this information to both the public and decision makers.
