URBAN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING

A major crisis confronting today's cities is the complex problem of transportation. Movement of both people and goods becomes increasingly slow, costly, unpleasant, and dangerous each year. Yet a wide knowledge gap exists between those with experience in transportation planning and those responsible for making decisions in the area. This book is specifically designed for those who need to know: engineers, urban planners, economists, government executives, businessmen, civic and political leaders. Focusing on overall planning methods rather than on specifics that change from city to city, Mr. Creighton discusses the large body of systematic knowledge now available about travel, land use, and transportation networks, and its significant implications for metropolitan and regional planning. He emphasizes the need for close coordination between transportation and land use planning, treats basic problems and policy issues of transportation, and describes the critical steps in the urban transportation planning process.
