1. Classics in Transport and Environmental Valuation series

    Series editor: David A. Hensher, Professor of Management and Founding Director, Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies (ITLS), The University of Sydney Business School, Australia

    Transportation as a discipline has made substantial contributions to many fields of research endeavour. Four themes that are particularly pertinent are: the development of econometric and data tools to study the choices of individuals and firms; the quantification of health impacts of mobility options; the role of accessibility in urban planning; and the use of new technologies (such as GPS and remote sensing) to capture data efficiently and reliably. This series focuses on contributions that have been made to the literature in these four areas over the last 30 years, with a strong emphasis on both the theoretical and practical contributions under these themes. The selected papers have been drawn from a number of publication sources spread across transportation, economics, health, environmental science, urban planning and geography, which in total represent the story so far of the foundational contributions to these literatures. The volumes in this series are essential reference sources for readers wanting to know the historical development and key contributions to a literature that continues to grow in importance and impact.

  1. New Technologies and Transportation Research

    New Technologies and Transportation Research

    Edited by Peter Stopher
    This book presents a collection of the most significant papers to have been published over the past fifteen years on the use of Global Positioning System (GPS) devices to measure person and vehicle travel. The carefully selected papers are prefaced by an original introduction. They track developments in the use of GPS devices to record travel and document some of the latest applications in which GPS is starting to replace conventional self-report surveys. Learn More

  2. Urban Form and Transport Accessibility

    Urban Form and Transport Accessibility

    Edited by Corinne Mulley
    This important collection provides a foundational understanding of the debates surrounding urban form and the ability of land use policy to deliver the preferred urban form. Professor Mulley has selected key published articles from disciplines at the interface of urban economics and transport economics. These are grouped together within a number of themes, beginning with the contribution of central place theories developed in the early twentieth century and ending with contemporary papers providing answers to current issues of cities.

  3. Transport, the Environment and Public Health: Classic Papers on Non-motorised Travel

    Transport, the Environment and Public Health: Classic Papers on Non-motorised Travel

    Edited by Stephen P. Greaves, Jan Garrard
    This volume brings together a collection of seminal articles published in the past twelve years focused around non-motorised transport (NMT). The editors have selected papers, drawn from the transportation, health and planning literature, which cover various dimensions of NMT, including prevalence and correlates, health benefits and risks, forecasting and evaluation methods, and policy interventions to increase NMT. This interdisciplinary volume, including an original introduction, will be of value and interest to academics/students and practitioners from a variety of contexts and backgrounds with an interest in NMT.

  4. Choice Modelling: Foundational Contributions

    Choice Modelling: Foundational Contributions

    Edited by David A. Hensher, John M. Rose
    Choice modelling is an area of growing popularity as many researchers and consultants seek to find better ways to explain the choices made by individuals, households and firms in many application contexts such as transportation, health services, environmental science, marketing, finance, economics, tourism, vacationing, education and employment. Choice modelling as a field began as long ago as 1927 but it was the research in the 1960s and 1970s that cemented the field as a dominant one for studying choice. This authoritative volume, along with an original introduction by the editors, brings together seminal papers that laid out the main features of the booming literature on discrete choice modelling. This timely collection will be of immense value to anyone with an interest in this evolving field of study. Learn More
