Public Transport Analysis and Evaluation discusses a concept that has increasingly been positioned to achieve broader social, environmental, and economic goals, hence the promotion of wider public transportation usage is a key concern among transportation researchers, professionals and government officials. Few available information resources address the complex perspectives needed for evaluating substantial investments or how to effectively communicate the results to all stakeholders. This book guides the reader through the important issues that need to be considered in every major public transit investment, providing valuable, useful tools for making effective and well-balanced decisions.
