Overview

Rietveld (transport economics, Vrije Universiteit and Tinbergen Institute, The Netherlands) collects important work in the field of transport from the 1950s through the 1990s, with special focus on urban areas where transportation problems are most acute. The book covers such topics as transport demand, supply of public transport services, and external costs of transport. Policy aspects such as urban transport policy and deregulation are explored, as well as areas such as parking, non-motorized transport, and urban transport in developing countries. Some specific topics examined include optimal bus size, the costs of air pollution from motor vehicles, the value of time spent in travel, efficient transportation infrastructure policy, temporal and spatial equilibrium analysis of commuter parking, and bicycle traffic in China. There is no subject index. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
