Transport is a fundamental component of all modern economies. Transport Policy presents a wide ranging collection of previously published articles which aim to provide the reader with an understanding of the main elements of transport policy.

Topics covered include: the objectives of transport policy, policy options, policy analysis and, through a series of case studies, policy implementation.

This volume will be of particular interest to those academics and policymakers seeking an overview of the most important issues in the modern transport policy arena.
‘The original pagination is kept on top of the present volume for ease of reference, which is most useful . . . The contents are well-chosen, international and covers most pertinent areas of transport economics and policy. It is particularly interesting to read articles from the pre-Thatcher era, saying things ignored at the time . . . This book would be a valuable addition to any reference collection with an interest in transport policy per se, particularly those which do not hold collections of the academic transport journals.’
