You might want to try the International Council of Local
Environmental Initiatives - Cities for Climate Protection
Campaign.  They have a program called green fleets.

Has anyone on this list any experience that proves that;

- subsidies for public transport (buses, trams, trains etc..)
have a
measurable effect on reducing road traffic

- increases in fuel costs reduces car use

- the provision of cycle lanes encourages cyclists who would
not have
otherwise cycled

- increasing the cost of car parking reduces car use


Basically I'm only interested in real life studies, not academic
or
computer modelled situations.

Thanks for any offers of help.
