Urban Transport reprints the most important papers in the field of transport that have a special focus on urban issues. It is in urban areas that many transportation problems are most acute. In this collection attention is paid amongst others to: transport demand, supply of public transport services and external costs of transport (environmental problems, congestion). Also policy aspects such as urban transport policy and deregulation are covered. In addition a number of specific topics such as parking, non-motorised transport modes and urban transport in developing countries are included. Urban Transport will be of interest for anybody involved in academic and applied research in the field of transport, from various disciplinary backgrounds (civil engineering, economics, transport planning, urban planning, environmental sciences). It is precisely because of the broad range of disciplines involved that a collection of classic articles will prove to be useful for many readers.
