How to implement smart, sustainable transportation concepts

Developing sustainable urbanism is the most important environmental concern of the twenty-first century. However, while other planning-related disciplines have already joined forces to meet new sustainability challenges—for example, the LEED Neighborhood Development standard—transportation has not kept pace. Instead, transportation planning often defaults to a 1950s mindset, still favoring auto-oriented, one-size-fits-all solutions.

Sustainable Transportation Planning brings the discipline up to date, offering a big-picture approach to transportation systems. Using clear, nontechnical language, this guide provides step-by-step instructions for implementing smart transportation concepts in both large and small communities. Making this material accessible opens the door to greater participation in transportation planning by design and policy professionals, as well as citizen activists. The text also helps transportation professionals better understand and align their discipline within the broader movement toward sustainable urbanism.

Written by noted transportation planner Jeffrey Tumlin, Sustainable Transportation Planning features:

  • Consideration of bike, pedestrian, automobile, and mass transit modes, as well as how these modes interrelate
  • Applicability at varying scales, from a downtown street to a neighborhood to a regional network
  • Case studies that look at exemplary projects across North America
  • Detailed measures of success for both individual transportation modes and entire systems
  • Additional discussion of parking, station design, and congestion management

Working from a comprehensive definition of sustainability—one that encompasses economic, ecological, and social vitality—Sustainable Transportation Planning provides the definitive sourcebook for understanding and implementing the full range of modern community transportation systems.
