PRINCIPLES OF URBAN TRANSPORT SYSTEMS PLANNING
The processes involved in urban transport strategic planning are described in depth and within a systems type framework by the author of this precedent-setting text. Recent advances as well as the commonly used analytical methods are described thoroughly. The first part of the book covers the techniques used to estimate the travel demands that are likely to be created by a given land use arrangement including trip generation analysis, modal split analysis, trip distribution analysis and traffic assignment analysis. A family of Lowry type land use models is presented and current applications of these models to regional spatial planning are discussed. Other topics covered by this book include transport technology, concepts of urban structure, economic evaluation, urban information sources and urban goods movements.
