Abstract: 
This paper addresses the impact of information and communication technology (ICT) on sustainable
transport by examining the direct application of ICT in urban transport. Following a discussion of various
negative externalities of transport, the paper examines the extent to which existing and potential ICT
applications in the transport sector can assist in making urban transport more sustainable than it is at
present. The focus of analysis is on qualitative and quantitative impacts of several ICT applications on
travel behaviour (including fatalities), factors that influence adoption, and impacts of adoption including
potentially secondary effects. The literature suggests that ICT innovations are most effective in fatality
reduction, but it seems that these are also quite effective in reducing fuel consumption through fuelintelligent
vehicles.
