The Routledge Handbook of Transport Economics

Five main topic areas are explored in this handbook on the economics of transport: public transport, public transport reform, economic development and transport modeling, transport and the environment, and freight transport. In one sense, economics lies at the root of any transport problem or predicament, which means that if the economics is properly understood, the situation can be mitigated. Scholars from around the world contribute chapters linking theory and practice in the following areas: passenger rail structure and reform; bus economics; pricing of public transport; intelligent transport systems; passenger air traffic; bus sector public service contracts; rail regulation; regulatory reform of public transport markets; airline deregulation; transport demand forecasting; transport appraisal; congestion pricing; transport modeling; efficiency assessment; environmental considerations in the provision of transport; green transport policy; sustainable travel; short sea shipping and ferries; road freight; rail freight; air cargo; and intermodal freight transport. This book will serve as a useful reference for students, researchers, and practitioners of transport provision.
