THE URBAN TRANSPORT CRISIS IN EUROPE AND NORTH AMERICA

This book examines the urban transport crisis from an international, comparative perspective. Throughout the industrialized world car ownership and use have grown rapidly over the past few decades while, in contrast, public transport use has either fallen or stagnated. These trends have caused increasingly severe social, economic and environmental problems. The purpose of this book is not just to describe the differences in transport systems, travel behaviour and transport problems but to identify policies which will help solve the ever growing problems of urban transport. The authors examine the problems and solutions experienced by a number of countries and provide a comparative assessment of their policies and future developments.
