A Research Agenda for Transport Policy

Edited by John Stanley and David A. Hensher

Everyone has an opinion on transport: it significantly affects daily lives. This book highlights key transport opportunities and challenges, and identifies research requirements to inform policy discussion and support better societal outcomes. It does this by scanning across modes, continents, technologies and socio-economic settings, looking for common threads, points of difference and opportunities to make a difference. The book should appeal to prospective post-graduate students, professionals in transport and related fields, and those interested in better places and good discussions.

Chapter 5: Transport governance

Greg Marsden


This chapter examines the changing nature of surface transport governance and what challenges the so-called ‘three revolutions’ of shared, autonomous and electric mobility bring. By paying greater attention to the formation of policies through networks of actors it is argued that the change in mobility will be strongly influenced by the business models, financing and strategies of the new and incumbent operators. This is not to suggest that the state will not be able to leverage significant influence over the direction of future developments. However, how it approaches this task will define whether the system travellers face is deeply integrated or whether such integration has to paper over the long-standing and new divides between individual modes. An overarching message from the chapter is that far greater attention has to be paid to how transitions which actually deliver public value can be brought about.
