Critical Acclaim
‘This is a thoughtfully-organized, comprehensive, yet accessible introduction to the transportation system, its effects on society, and policies designed to guide it. Chapter authors are top scholars in their respective domains, and the result is richly informative. I have already enthusiastically recommended this book to colleagues and students alike.’
– Patricia L. Mokhtarian, Georgia Institute of Technology, US

'This may well be the transport policy textbook staff and students on transport degree courses have been waiting for. With contributions from world experts in their fields, it covers the full range of transport policy topics, is bang up to date, and offers in-depth explanation and analysis, all in an accessible writing style. Highly recommended.'
– Tom Rye, Molde University College, Norway

‘This book, fully revised from the first edition, is the most authoritative text on transport policy and transport economics currently available. The authors have managed to build into the book the essential elements of the field that any student studying transportation, or indeed consultants and government agencies, will find enlightening, keeping them up to date.’
