The performance of current transport systems is inadequate when viewed in terms of economic efficiency, sustainability and safety. Drawing together key an impressive list of contributors from the vast field of transportation economics including Kenneth Button, David Banister and Juan Carlos Martin, this book investigates transport systems, and covers a wide range of topics such as: * airline markets * congestion charging * speed control. This informative book, ideal for undergraduate and postgraduate students of economics, business and industrial studies examines the tools that are necessary to effectively measure transport systems and those that are required to improve them. Utilizing advanced tools of network analysis, the contributors challenge various pieces of conventional wisdom, in particular the view that intermodal transport is more environmentally benign than road transport.
