The growing global population and the future of city transport 
 
“But what about our transport systems, which are great at getting people to and from offices in capital cities but not so good at getting us to shops, parks, doctors’ clinics and across suburbs?
 
“What happens when fewer of us go to work every day, and more of us need help to get around?
 
“It’s not just the makeup of our societies that will be reshaped, but the texture of our cities and the way we move around them.
 
“’We do need to be designing cities, for example, in somewhere like Australia, with a view that there are going to be many more older Australians here, so thinking about walkability and accessibility is all really, really important,’ [demographer] Dr [Elin] Charles-Edwards [of the University of Queensland] says.”
