Transportation, Land Use, and Environmental Planning, (ePub/PDF) explores the practices and policies connecting transportation, land use, and environmental planning needed to attain a healthy environment, a flourishing economy, and a more equitable and inclusive society. It evaluates best practices for improving the performance of city and regional transportation systems, looking at such issues as mixed-use and higher density urban development, public transit, and non-motorized travel investments, radically transformed vehicles, and transportation systems. The ebook lays out the rising need for greater integration of transportation, land use, and environmental planning, looking keenly at transforming demographic needs, public health concerns, equity, housing affordability, and livability.
Moreover, strategies for achieving these desired results are presented, including urban design and land use planning, bike and pedestrian improvements, regional and corridor-level transit plans, demand management strategies, and upcoming technologies and services. The final part of the ebook examines implementation challenges, considering lessons from the US and around the world at both local and regional levels.
