Transit Oriented Development and Sustainable Cities

Economics, Community and Methods Edited by Richard D. Knowles, Emeritus Professor of Transport Geography, University of Salford, Manchester and Visiting Professor of Transport, Huddersfield Business School, University of Huddersfield and Fiona Ferbrache, Senior College Lecturer in Human Geography, Keble College, University of Oxford, UK
This book provides new dimensions and a contemporary focus on sustainable transport, urban regeneration and development in eight countries spanning four continents at different stages of development. It examines the role of transit oriented development (TOD) in improving urban sustainability and providing different transport choices, exploring how these can be implemented in modern cities.

This book provides new dimensions and a contemporary focus on sustainable transport, urban regeneration and development in eight countries spanning four continents at different stages of development. It examines the role of transit oriented development (TOD) in improving urban sustainability and providing different transport choices, exploring how these can be implemented in modern cities.

Establishing a new agenda for TOD, experts in the field critically evaluate the links between urban transport investment and economic, social and environmental sustainability, introducing new methods of analysis. The chapters investigate the international dimensions of TOD, providing crucial insights into issues such as uneven development, transport emissions, global warming, car dependence and the challenge of powering vehicles with sustainable fuels.

Urban and regional planning, transport studies and environmental management scholars seeking to understand urban sustainability issues will benefit from this timely book. It will also prove to be a valuable read for urban planners and research consultants looking to widen their knowledge of the role of TOD in enhancing urban sustainability.
‘As TOD practice matures, executing the concept remains fraught with challenges and complexities. Knowles and Ferbrache advance theory and practice by synthesizing a large volume of literature and showcasing case studies from around the globe that examine economic development, sustainability, social development, and methods. This book serves as a foundation for students and practitioners across a variety of disciplines interested in enhancing their understanding of the multiple dimensions of TOD and how it remains a tangible method of advancing sustainable cities.’
