Urban Form and Transport Accessibility

Classics in Transport and Environmental Valuation series

Edited by Corinne Mulley, Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies, University of Sydney, Australia

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.

‘This collection of seminal papers reflects on the long history of research on urban form and transport accessibility, and it includes contributions from many of the most influential thinkers in urban and regional science. Now they have all been assembled in a single volume that is accessible to all researchers – it provides an invaluable resource.’
– David Bannister, University of Oxford, UK

‘This book is very useful for academics interested in understanding the evolution of theoretical thinking in this area. In addition, it could be very useful for PhD students and specialized master courses in the area of urban economics. Libraries of universities and colleges with a strong group on urban economics definitely should buy it’
– Bert van Wee, Journal of Environmental Policy & Planning
