Overview


While much of the transportation systems in Europe and the United States are mature (if not senescent), the rest of the world is still planning, developing, and deploying new systems. The accomplishments and mistakes of places like the United Kingdom and the United States, then, can teach us lessons that may be applied to places where transportation remains nascent or adolescent. The Transportation Experience seeks to understand the genesis of transportation policy in America and the UK, along with the roles that this policy plays as systems are innovated, deployed, and reach maturity, and how policies might be improved.

    A fascinating ride

    I am not an expert in the field of transportation but I am interested in the history of technology and the synthesis of various areas of expertise, which is why I found this book rewarding. Parts include: Life Cycle of the Railroads Modal Experiences: Transit, Turnpike, Highways, Canals, Ocean, Aviation Inputs and Outputs: Communication, Energy, Environment, Finance, Forecasting, Time, Land Creating Experiences: Innovation, Technology, Imagination, Benefits Speculations. The book is very accessible to an educated reader and advanced knowledge of the field of transportation is not required however, a broad interest in transportation, policy, city planning, economics, geography, and especially networks is definitely a plus. If you can read academic writing this book is fine. The main objectives of the authors are to: understand the experiences and logic in transportation and the boundaries of knowledge in transportation. The main question that the book asks is: Why can¿t we do better in the field of transportation? This question is then answered by looking not only in transportation itself but all the other areas that affect transportation. The book looks at well developed modes like the railroad and speculates about possible futures such as PRT (personal rapid transit). The authors¿ aim to use the past to speculate on the future and to point alternative routes of development that are still available to other parts of world which is interesting for not being purely descriptive though heavy in case history. Overall, a surprisingly good read for me. The pull-out boxes provide interesting short reading the history of various things such as, Bell Labs, Federal Express, Air mail, and US Army Corps of Engineers. The main body of the text asks and analyses why the field of transportation has not done better, and argues that if we, the reader, understand the underlying history, logic, and knowledge boundaries of transportation, we can do better.
