Planning for Public Transport Accessibility
A new international sourcebook about urban public transportation networks has recently been published by Urbanet’s SNAMUTS team. The book, entitled “Planning for Public Transport Accessibility: An international sourcebook”, adds substantial analytical and theoretical perspectives to the international discourse about public transport network planning.
Urbanet’s SNAMUTS multimodal network analysis tool has been applied to a broad range of international destinations, enabling rich comparison between cities by old world–new world; public transport modes; governance approach and urban development constraints.
The book is arranged along six themes that address the different planning challenges cities confront. Richly illustrated with maps and diagrams, this volume acts as a comprehensive sourcebook of accessibility indicators and a snapshot of current policy making around the world in the realm of strategic planning for land use transport integration and the growth of public transport. It provides a deeper understanding of the complexity, opportunities and challenges of twenty-first-century accessibility planning.
