This Handbook provides comprehensive coverage of all of the major factors that underpin our understanding of urban and transport planning in the developed world. Combining urban and transport planning in one volume, the chapters present the state of the art as well as new research and directions for the future.

The contributions from leading international academics at the forefront of their fields consider transport and urban planning from a number of different perspectives including historical, policy and strategy dimensions, appraisal and financing of options, planning and design of urban areas and the management of transport and urban systems. Examples and practical guides from the developed world are included along with a detailed discussion of the emerging issues.

The Handbook provides an essential reference to all of the key points on the topic as well as signalling areas of concern and future research paths. Academics, researchers, students, policymakers and practitioners will find it a constant source of information and guidance.
‘The Handbook on Transport and Urban Planning in the Developed World edited by Michiel Bliemer, Corinne Mulley and Claudine Moutou comprehensively covers many important topics relevant to transport practice in the early twenty-first century, ranging from the fundamentals of accessibility and demographics, through traffic operations, to economics and evaluation. It has value for any budding transport analyst, engineer, or planner entering the field, and for existing practitioners who want overviews of emerging topics and cutting-edge research by leading academics.’
– David M. Levinson, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, US

‘We live in an urban world that is undergoing rapid change. With an international galaxy of authors, the three editors have presented the key transport and urban planning theories and practices facing cities in developed countries, arguing consistently about the importance of land use and transport, and the strong links between urban form and efficiency. The coherence of thinking and consistency of message makes this book an authoritative addition to the literature.’
– David Banister, Oxford University, UK
