- Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 115.95
This is the first book to review a trend in transport systems which has only recently come of age: the multi-modal interchange. Separate modes of transport are being linked through 'joined-up thinking', and transport designers and authorities are only now able to exploit interchange opportunities. This book presents examples of how these new opportunities... more...

Roadwork Theory and Practice gives the essential information needed by every road worker, highway technician, incorporated, graduate or chartered engineer, not only by explaining the theory of road construction and its associated activities, but by illustrating its application with practical working methods that are in use in everyday engineering... more...

Building effective and user-friendly transportation systems is one of the big challenges for engineers in the 21st century. There is an increasing need to understand, model, and govern such systems at both the individual (micro) and the society (macro) level. Still, this raises significant technical problems, as transportation systems may contain thousands... more...

As highways, crossing points, and urban streets become increasingly jammed with traffic, more and more roadway authorities are turning to electronic tolling and pricing to manage traffic and road usage. This authoritative book offers professionals expert guidance in planning, procuring, and operating electronic tolling and road-user charging systems.... more...

What is efficient intermodal freight transport? How are "best practices" to be found? What measures are being developed in OECD countries for assessing the relative efficiency of modes and modal combinations? What opportunities exist to improve complex intermodal transport chains? How are such opportunities identified and assessed?. Todays... more...

The interchange is a new form of transport building which integrates into a single whole various modes of public transport, putting the passenger first (rather than the infrastructure). This book presents design principles for transport interchanges and offers analysis of best practice in the UK and abroad. The author demonstrates how this complex... more...
- Wiley 2013; US$ 125.00
The use and management of multimodal transport systems, including car-pooling and goods transportation, have become extremely complex, due to their large size (sometimes several thousand variables), the nature of their dynamic relationships as well as the many constraints to which they are subjected. The managers of these systems must ensure that the... more...

For many transportation systems, the cost of expanding the infrastructure is too high. Therefore, engineers must shift their focus to improving the quality of transportation within the existing infrastructure. Focusing on highway and railway systems, Intelligent Transportation Systems: New Principles and Architectures provides a radically different... more...
- McGraw-Hill Education 2003; US$ 157.50
This is a comprehensive, problem-solving engineering guide on the strategic planning, development, and maintenance of public and private transportation systems. Covering all modes of transportation on land, air, and water, the Handbook shows how to solve specific problems, such as facility improvement, cost reduction, or operations optimization... more...

Human errors contribute significantly to most transportation crashes: approximately 70 to 90 percent of crashes are the result of human error. This book examines human reliability across all types of transportation systems. The material is accessible to readers with no previous knowledge in the field and is supported with a full explanation of the... more...
