TRANSPORTATION AND THE ENVIRONMENT

The book examines the long term sociological effect of changes in transportation on the environment. The subject is viewed from two aspects. The first is the generation of problems such as traffic congestion, lack of parking space and the financial problems of providing bus and rail services, while the second is the changes in society due to fundamental changes in transport systems. The author discusses this aspect in the following chapters: (1) Introduction to the transport problem, (2) Some effects of transport on the environment--a historical point of view, (3) Transport investment and the environment, (4) Transport organisation and the environment, (5) Personal transport and the environment, and (6) Transport and the environment: some possibilities of the future.
