Synthesising current understandings on the relationship between transport and land use, this timely Handbook proposes an agenda for research and practice that leads toward more human-centered communities within an increasingly urbanized world facing rapid technological change.
 
Leading scholars reframe and expand conventional transport policy holistically with concepts grounded in behavioral, economic, psychological and sociological theories in this fundamental reference work. Chapters explore the role of institutional policies and informal cultural contexts in influencing transport and land use systems, before examining the impacts of transportation and land use decisions across multiple areas, including equity, public health, climate, environment, and lifestyle preferences. The Handbook concludes by emphasizing pathways for human-centered development, planning, and policy in an age of rapid innovation in new mobility technologies.
 
Outlining the fundamental, emerging and developing theories, methods, models and policies across the fields of transportation and land use, this interdisciplinary Handbook will be invaluable to students and scholars of urban planning and transport studies. Setting an agenda for future research and policy initiatives, it will also prove a useful resource to policymakers and practitioners working within transport and land use planning.
Critical Acclaim
‘Getting the connections between transportation and land use right is vital to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and securing mobility justice. Drawing from multiple disciplines, this volume provides conceptual, empirical, methodological, and practical insights into those connections across both old and new challenges. An indispensable reference for academics and practitioners alike.’
– Susan Handy, University of California, Davis, US

‘A comprehensive, cross-disciplinary tour of the all-important transport-land use connection. The Handbook is highly topical and informed by top-notch research. Its international scope and attention to some of today’s most pressing challenges, like planning in an era of pandemics and automated technologies, are particular strengths. Recommended to transportation professionals and policy-makers alike.’
– Robert Cervero, University of California, Berkeley, US
