Transport is considered one of the main sources of externalities. Important externalities are air pollution, noise, congestion, wear and tear, but also accident, congestion and schedule delay costs imposed upon others. It is proposed to focus the summer school not only on environmental problems in a very narrow sense but also to study the interrelation with the other types of externalities. Transport externalities need a somewhat different analysis from most other externalities in the sense that the level of the externalities feeds back into the level of the activity: increased congestion and accident levels decrease participation in transport activities.
