About this book

Provides practical lessons on how North American cities can manage sprawl and haphazard highway development by creating successful mass transit systems. Cervero considers the key lessons of the case studies and debunks widely-held myths about transit and the city. In addition, he reviews the efforts underway in five North American cities to mount transit programs and discusses the factors working for and against their success. Cities profiled include Stockholm, Singapore, Tokyo, Ottawa, Zurich, Melbourne, Mexico City, Curitiba (Brazil) and Vancouver.
