Handbook on Transport and Land Use: A Holistic Approach in an Age of Rapid Technological Change

About the eBook

Synthesizing current understandings on the relationship between transport and land use, this timely Handbook proposes an agenda for research and practice that leads toward more human-centered communities within an increasingly urbanized world facing rapid technological change.

Leading scholars reframe and expand conventional transport policy holistically with concepts grounded in behavioral, economic, psychological and sociological theories in this fundamental reference work. Chapters explore the role of institutional policies and informal cultural contexts in influencing transport and land use systems, before examining the impacts of transportation and land use decisions across multiple areas, including equity, public health, climate, environment, and lifestyle preferences. The Handbook concludes by emphasizing pathways for human-centered development, planning, and policy in an age of rapid innovation in new mobility technologies.

Outlining the fundamental, emerging and developing theories, methods, models and policies across the fields of transportation and land use, this interdisciplinary Handbook will be invaluable to students and scholars of urban planning and transport studies. Setting an agenda for future research and policy initiatives, it will also prove a useful resource to policymakers and practitioners working within transport and land use planning.
