Urban Mass Transportation Planning / Edition 1

The policy-oriented book provides a comprehensive introduction to mass transit-offering some technical material,but avoiding in-depth coverage of electric and mechanical engineering. It offers a balanced view of the debate between highways and transit-presenting both sides of controversial issues. It also gives readers the necessary understanding to analyze problems objectively and to assure that transit proposals are rationally planned and evaluated. Historical and political background is provided,as well as topics involving the design of transit networks,operations and management,and impacts on land use,energy consumption and the environment.
