"An attractive and appreciated aspect of this book is Bruun's balanced approach. Skillfully the book demonstrates that modelling is a prerequisite for better public transport, but at the same time it warns against the implications of using sophisticated models." - Moshe Givoni, Transport Reviews, Tel-Aviv University, Israel
"This is a very useful book, offering guidance on the planning and evaluation of major new public transit projects, and will be of interest for undergraduate and postgraduate students, academics and practitioners. It covers many important dimensions not previously brought together in one publication, including route and network analysis, modesplit estimation, space requirements, cost modelling and contract models." - Robin Hickman, University College London, Urban Studies
