In Chapter 11 we discussed several technical advances made over the years, as well as current challenges, as possible pointers to future research requirements. In this concluding chapter we wish to address some further rather more general questions. The first is to ask how progress was achieved, as a means of identifying the preconditions for the creation, diffusion and adoption of new ideas. Then, we want to consider how the accumulated experience of the field can be passed on, particularly to new generations of urban transportation planners and travel forecasters, as well as interested citizens. At several points we shall express personal views, hoping that they will stimulate or rekindle debate.
