Transport Economics, 3rd Edition

3rd edition

Kenneth Button, University Professor, Schar School of Policy and Government, George Mason University, US

This successful and widely adopted textbook has been meticulously revised and updated for the third edition. As the best intermediate text currently available, it will be welcomed by students, policymakers and all those concerned with the supply of transport services.

‘In the 3rd edition of Transport Economics Button draws together the burgeoning literature in transportation economics. It is a comprehensive standalone text covering all aspects of the field including new sections on logistics and congestion pricing. It should be required reading for every student of transportation and on the library shelf of all transportation researchers and practitioners, an excellent book.’
– David Gillen, University of British Columbia, Canada

Acclaim for the second edition:

‘To the literature in the field of transport economics, this is a most welcome addition. Primarily a textbook on theory, it also contains many references to applied studies. . . The book is written in a lucid style and consequently is easy to read and understand.’
– J.P. Hanlon, Transport

‘It is admirably structured, with an introductory chapter placing transport in its economic context and relating transport and location economics.’
– Urban Studies

‘This book is written in a clear, easy to understand style. It is essential reading for those studying for the Institute’s Transport Economics examination as well as for undergraduate and postgraduate students of the subject. . . The book offers good value for money and is strongly recommended to anyone with an interest in transport economics.’
– M.R. Cairns, Transport

‘ . . . this book does read very much like a textbook; it explains economic concepts clearly, often in both words and mathematical equations, and identifies their relevance in the transport field. . . Transport Economics does provide a good basis with which to understand most of the issues behind what is one of the fastest moving areas of environmental activity in an area where most books will be out of date almost as soon as they are written anyway.’
– Marcus Enoch, Environmental Politics
