FLEXIBLE URBAN TRANSPORTATION
This book provides a critique of transportation planning as it is practiced in the U.S. today, and also proposes a new, more flexible approach. The U.S. is now facing profound challenges to its economic competitiveness and social equity, to public safety and security, and to the integrity of its environment. The ability to create transportation systems that contribute to addressing these challenges effectively requires a planning process radically different from the process currently in place. The book takes the next logical step and examines the difficult question of what can and should be done to remedy the transportation planning crisis in the U.S., describing how the situation reached its present state, and offering a way forward.
