Series: Advances in Transport Policy and Planning

Advances in Transport Policy and Planning is the first comprehensive review publication addressing broad aspects of transportation policy, planning, and management. There are a selection of policy-relevant books on the market, but these do not cover the same wide-range of trends, innovative policies and planning concepts or evaluation perspectives.  Volumes in the serial will present and evaluate contemporary transport planning and policy outcomes, as well as address innovations in the transport system and global trends relevant to the field, providing authoritative review articles on key issues. Edited by leading subject experts, volumes are designed as in-depth overviews of latest topic developments, evaluating contemporary transport policies and planning, as well as analyzing future trends and implications, including sustainability.  This serial covers a wide range of topics such as the outcomes and effects of the transport system, safety, accessibility planning, transport and health, climate change and policy, sustainability, innovations in transport policies across the world, collaboration between the public and the private sector, the growing impact of ICT on activities and travel behaviour, and upcoming transport modes and vehicle technologies, among other topics.

Furthermore, it is important to publish this work due to the rapidly changing context of planning and policy making. This is a hugely contemporary and interdisciplinary area that covers financial, environmental, and political concerns, intersecting a number of important global trends, including population decline in many regions and countries, raising a series of new challenges for transport planning and policy makers. Providing uniquely comprehensive insights and analysis addressing fast-paced and developing subject areas from an international and interdisciplinary perspective, this series is ideal reading for university faculty, researchers and students interested or involved in the field, as well as policy-makers and industry professionals.

Volume 2. Population Loss: The Role of Transportation and Other Issues

Published: 2nd November 2018 Serial Volume Editors: Rachel S. Franklin Eveline S. van Leeuwen Antonio Paez

At heart, transportation policy and research are about people: connecting individuals and the places they live, ensuring sufficient and equitable access, and facilitating movement. Whether at the regional, city, or neighborhood scale, the loss of population presents unique challenges where transport is concerned. It is not only about preservation of existing access, but possibly even a question of increased need for connectivity and mobility. Demographic changes that accompany depopulation--aging for example-- also impact existing systems, preferences, and needs.
