Urban Transport, Environment, and Equity
Eduardo A. Vasconcellos
Price: $ 35

Traditional transport planning has generated transport systems that propagate an unfair distribution of accessibility and have environmental and safety issues. This book highlights the importance of social and political aspects of transport policy and provides a methodology to support this approach. It emphasizes the importance of coordinating urban transport and traffic planning, and addresses the major challenge of modifying the building and use of roads. The author makes valuable suggestions for innovative and radical new measures towards an equitable and sustainable urban environment.

Eduardo A Vasconcellos is Director of the National Association of Public Transport in Brazil.
