This book introduces some basic aspects and problems of urban transportation, beginning with a historical survey. A major theme is the relationship between land use and transportation, and much of the book is an examination of how changing transportation needs require land use change and vice versa. The cost of transportation and who pays for it is analyzed. The author compares transportation systems in developed nations with the needs of Third World nations and concludes that Third World transportation problems are much more difficult, and likely to remain severe for many years.
