Advanced Introduction to Urban Transport Planning

9781800374089 Edward Elgar Publishing
Kevin J. Krizek, Professor of Environmental Design, University of Colorado, Boulder and David A. King, Faculty Member and Assistant Professor, School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning, Arizona State University, US
Publication Date: 2021 ISBN: 978 1 80037 408 9 Extent: 160 pp
Insightful and original in its approach, this Advanced Introduction to Urban Transport Planning provides a fresh look at cost-efficiency and casts the craft of transport planning in new light, allowing engineers and urban planners to understand the benefits of breaking mobility-centric systems that favour cars and prioritising multi-modal transport systems that promote access. It features in-depth analysis of traditional methods and how these are changing due to new technologies, financial constraints and evolving environmental trends.

Elgar Advanced Introductions are stimulating and thoughtful introductions to major fields in the social sciences, business and law, expertly written by the world’s leading scholars. Designed to be accessible yet rigorous, they offer concise and lucid surveys of the substantive and policy issues associated with discrete subject areas.

Insightful and original in its approach, this Advanced Introduction to Urban Transport Planning provides a fresh look at cost-efficiency and casts the craft of transport planning in new light, allowing engineers and urban planners to understand the benefits of breaking mobility-centric systems that favour cars and prioritising multi-modal transport systems that promote access. It features in-depth analysis of traditional methods and how these are changing due to new technologies, financial constraints and evolving environmental trends.

Key features include:

• Discussion of advantages of urban areas in terms of transport service provision
• Clear distillation of priorities for a new era of transport planning
• Concise coverage of predominant concepts and theories
• Application for both urban planners and engineers
• Future oriented, cost-effective strategy.

This Advanced Introduction will be invaluable for students of urban planning, transport geography, environmental studies, urban studies and civil engineering. It will also provide a useful update for urban planners, elected officials and civil engineers alike.
Critical Acclaim
‘What a great book! Krizek and King bring the discipline of transport planning up-to-date with a keen eye on cities of the future. A holistic overview is provided, underpinned by social justice and accessibility thinking, considering all modes of transport and the relationship with the built environment. This book should be mandatory reading for all transport planners, not just students. I hope that it will promote new and inspirational practices that improve our ways of living.’
– Carey Curtis, Guest Professor, Lund University/ K2 The Swedish Knowledge Centre for Public Transport, Sweden

‘Advanced Introduction to Urban Transport Planning delivers on its title: a sophisticated discussion of the fundamental principles of urban mobility and how to shape our cities towards more sustainable mobility outcomes. Krizek and King’s text can bring students from diverse backgrounds quickly up to speed on the key ideas, and will also inspire fresh thinking by professional planners at all levels.’
– Harvey J. Miller, The Ohio State University, US
