About this book

The coordination of transportation and land use - which transforms both the transport infrastructure supply and the amenity of urban space - is one of the most important research issues in urban planning today. Concurrently the issue of energy consumption in the transport sector has emerged as a crucial one. This has resulted in an important research need: the examination and identification of the influence of the mechanisms of land-use transport interaction on global energy conusmption and environmental damage.
