Overview

Over the past thirty-five years, a tremendous body of both theoretical and empirical research has been established on the 'science of transp ortation'. The Handbook of Transportation Science has collected and sy nthesized this research into a systematic treatment of this field cove ring its fundamental concepts, methods, and principles. The purpose of this handbook is to define transportation as a scientific discipline that transcends transportation technology and methods. Whether by car, truck, airplane { or by a mode of transportation that has not yet bee n conceived { transportation obeys fundamental properties. The science of transportation defines these properties, and demonstrates how our knowledge of one mode of transportation can be used to explain the beh avior of another.
