Full access

This chapter introduces the purpose of the book and outlines its structure. It explains how each chapter seeks to both frame the current and emerging state of play in its field and then suggest research topics that will help further the development of more effective transport policies. The importance of integrated approaches to transport policy and planning is a common theme, both within the transport sector and to areas like land use, housing and related matters. Disruptive change, another common theme of the book, only serves to emphasize the importance of integrated thinking.
