From a variety of perspectives this volume demonstrates the continuing relevance of socio-historical inquiry on the relationship between public transport and urban development. By differentiating between the many roles of urban transport in the 19th century, it confirms that public transport was not directly linked to urban growth, and instead often had only a limited effect on the wider urban structure. In so doing it forces a reassessment of the received historiography that maintains that cheap public transport was essential to the spectacular growth of cites in the 19th century.
