Experts like Todd Litman of the Victoria Transport Policy Institute in British Columbia say it's a matter of what planners call smart growth - or lack thereof.

"Much of the motivation for middle-class households to move from cities to suburbs was to distance themselves from lower-income households that cannot afford single-family homes and automobile transportation," he told IPS.
...
By contrast, says Litman, the study's lead author, "smart growth consists of compact neighbourhoods with diverse housing and transportation options which accommodate diverse types of households - young, old, rich, poor, people with disabilities - and residents can choose the most efficient mode for each trip: walking and cycling for local errands, high quality public transit when traveling on busy urban corridors, and automobiles when they are truly optimal overall, considering all impacts.
...
One major challenge, Litman says, is the common perception that cities are inefficient and dangerous, when in fact "in many ways they are actually more efficient and safer than suburban communities, and they become more efficient and safer as more middle-class households move into urban neighbourhoods."
...
"Virtually no city is implementing all of the policy reforms that I think are justified based on economic efficiency and social equity principles," Litman concluded.
