The Economics Of Urban Transportation

RRP $640.99

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

This timely new edition of Kenneth A. Small's seminal textbook Urban Transportation Economics, co-authored with Erik T. Verhoef, has been fully updated, covering new areas such as parking policies, reliability of travel times, and the privatization of transportation services, as well as updated treatments of congestion modelling, environmental costs, and transit subsidies.

Rigorous in approach and making use of real-world data and econometric techniques, it contains case studies from a range of countries including congestion charging in Norway, Singapore and the UK, light rail in the Netherlands and freeway tolls in the US.

Small and Verhoef cover all basic topics needed for any application of economics to transportation:



  • forecasting the demand for transportation services under alternative policies

  • measuring all the costs including those incurred by users

  • setting prices under practical constraints

  • choosing and evaluating investments in basic facilities

  • designing ways in which the private and public sectors interact to provide services.


This book will be of great interest to students with basic calculus and some knowledge of economic theory who are engaged with transportation economics, planning and, or engineering, travel demand analysis, and many related fields. It will also be essential reading for researchers in any aspect of urban transportation.


Eliminating Serious Injury And Death From Road Transport

Listen: Ian Johnston busts the bad behavior myth.

Should we really accept road trauma as collateral damage from daily road use? Eliminating Serious Injury and Death from Road Transport: A Crisis of Complacency explores why societies and their elected leaders view traffic safety as a (relatively) minor problem. It examines the changes in the culture of road use that need to occur if this public health problem is to be effectively resolved.

  • Examines why road use culture is ego-centric ("what's in it for me?") and why this blocks progress
  • Explores current traffic safety measurement methods and demonstrates how they have underpinned our flawed approach
  • Discusses the controversial issue of speed and speeding and shows how a new approach to speed management will be fundamental to transformational change
  • Details a simple account of the concept of a "Safe System" (as now promoted by the WHO and the OECD) while exploring the failure to get beyond the principles to extensive implementation

The book dispels the myths that currently drive societies' (misguided) view of traffic safety-the bad behavior myth and the official myth that everything that can be done is being done-and how these myths limit progress in reducing death and serious injury. It presents current scientific knowledge and draws parallels with other areas of public safety and health. The book draws on examples from the media and from public policy debates to paint a clear picture of a flawed public policy approach. It presents a model for a preventive medicine approach to traffic safety policy to get beyond an ego-centric culture to a communal safety culture.

Long-term financial planning and sound governance is essential for maintaining transportation infrastructure and assets. Public-private sector partnerships and cooperation are vital. This book looks at the current state of our infrastructure and ways to better maintain it with environmentally friendly solutions and long-term sustainability and capital planning. It examines transportation modalities and provides case examples and best practices from cities around the world where long-term asset management and local cooperation has worked to maintain and improve critical infrastructure. The authors provide creative solutions that can be implemented now for maintenance, stability, and even growth.

The letters of Publicola, a fascinating window into the debate that occurred in the early days of the French Revolution, before significant blood had been shed in France, before the French people had beheaded their king and queen, before the Reign of Terror, before Napoleon was a name of any significance, and before all of Europe became engulfed in war, written anonymously by John Quincy Adams.


Biofuels For Road Transport

"Biofuels for Road Transport: A Seed to Wheel Perspective" provides a review of the history, the current status and perspectives for biofuels used in road transport, across the full 'seed-to-wheel' life cycle of these fuels. Successive chapters cover the history of biofuels; the first- and second-generation liquid fuels and biofuels for powering electric vehicles; fossil fuel replacement, land requirement, greenhouse gas balances and environmental burdens of ethanol, esters derived from fatty acids ('biodiesel'), Fischer-Tropsch diesel and HTU diesel; competing technologies (fossil fuels, increases in energy-efficiency and photovoltaic power) and how they compare to biofuels; and the perspectives for biofuels. Cost, availability, technological development, competition with biomass for food and for soil organic carbon and environmental perspectives are also discussed.
