More About This Textbook

Overview

"Transport Economics, 3rd Edition, is a thoroughly revised edition of a well-established textbook which applies economic analysis to transport issues. Each chapter has been carefully reworked and includes new material dealing with the regulation of transport markets. The theoretical content is supported with considerable empirical evidence drawn from a wide range of International sources. Although aimed primarily at university students, this volume is accessible to non-specialists who have an interest in transport economics. It has no modal bias but rather examines in general terms the many aspects of the demand for, and supply of, transport together with the various methods of government intervention needed to ensure that social and environmental criteria are attained." This successful and widely adopted textbook has been meticulously revised and updated for the 3rd 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.
