Transportation, Land Use, and Environmental Planning examines the practices and policies linking transportation, land use and environmental planning needed to achieve a healthy environment, thriving economy, and more equitable and inclusive society. It assesses best practices for improving the performance of city and regional transportation systems, looking at such issues as public transit and non-motorized travel investments, mixed use and higher density urban development, radically transformed vehicles, and transportation systems. The book lays out the growing need for greater integration of transportation, land use, and environmental planning, looking closely at changing demographic needs, public health concerns, housing affordability, equity, and livability.

In addition, strategies for achieving these desired outcomes are presented, including urban design and land use planning, regional and corridor-level transit plans, bike and pedestrian improvements, demand management strategies, and emerging technologies and services. The final part of the book examines implementation challenges, considering lessons from the US and around the globe at both local and regional levels.

  • Introduces never-before-published research
  • Offers best practices for transit, cycling, urban design and housing provision
  • Assesses emerging developments, such as smart cities, new vehicle technologies, automated highways and transportation sharing
  • Examines the institutional and political dimensions of sustainability planning at the urban and regional levels
  • Utilizes case studies from around the world that show alternative ways forward
