Accessibility and the Bus System: Transforming the World

An interdisciplinary approach to how bus systems enable urban efficiency and sustainability by providing for growing urban populations. Discussing the importance of accessibility, the book provides a comprehensive view of the functionality of bus systems, and how their positive aspects can be optimized. By 2050, 70% of the world’s population is expected to be urbanized, and public transportation will be pivotal in ensuring access to work, education, and health, social and leisure services. Several bus systems around the world, including the UK, USA, Peru and Colombia, are examined, and a strategy including public participation in planning, is developed for making the bus system an integral part of urban dwellers' lives. The book is addressed to city and transportation planners, bus system designers and managers, and transportation and civil engineers.
