    My friend, Associate Professor Nobuaki Ohmori from The University of Tokyo,
    is doing some I believe important work on fair transport for an aging
    society, and in this respect he has honored me by asking me the following
    question. If anyone here can help him (or perhaps via any of your lists), it
    would be much appreciated. With kind thanks, Eric Britton

    Subject: ask for your help: Nobu from Tokyo

    Dear Eric,

    This is Nobuaki Ohmori from Tokyo. How have you been? Today I would like to
    ask for your help on the following two matters:

    . . .

    2. I have also been conducting a research on "accessible cities and
    transportation for children and parents." As you know, Japan has been facing
    an aging society with fewer children and Japanese government has been
    tackling a problem of declining birthrate. The attached file was made by
    Japanese government and explains related policies in Japan.

    I would like to review such policies to cope with the declining birthrate
    and accessible cities and transportation for children and parents in
    advanced European countries such as France, Sweden, UK, etc. Do you know
    where I will be able to access to such information? Do you know some persons
    who are responsible for or know much about this matter?

    I would much appreciate it if you could help me in the above two matters.

    Best regards,

    Subject: RE: City Bikes introduced in our university

    Congratulations Nobuaki,

    I am sure this will be an interesting beginning of a project for you and
    your colleagues. And I hope that your testing of the bikes will proceed very
    fast, and that you will have the full attention of some of the key
    government policy units so that once you have a feeling of confidence they
    will be prepared to move fast.

    The planet is in worse shape than the Nikkei and as far as the
    transportation component of our daily lives we know very well what to do
    next.  And shred bikes is not a bad way to start.

    With all good wishes,

    PS. You may have some fun with this from our carsharing work:
