About this book

This unique book examines the role of institutions in transport regulation within a sustainability and comparative Trans-Atlantic framework. With contributions from leading experts in the field, three areas of analysis are provided: barriers to implementation of reforms, regulatory issues and Public-Private Partnerships (PPP). The discussion on barriers focuses on political and public acceptance, as well as equity and environmental justice. Regulatory reform analyses include comparative discussions of railroad and airline deregulation in North America and Europe which are complimented with analyses of EU integration and transport regulation for sustainability, transport pricing and inter country competition. Finally, infrastructure finance and evaluation frameworks for PPP form the topical focus for a comprehensive assessment of PPP within the transport sector.

Media reviews
'This excellent volume is a landmark in the challenging and multifaceted field of institutions and transport. It brings together the work of leading experts from Europe, the United States and Canada to provide a superb overview of transatlantic perspectives on the role of institutional change, regulatory reform and public-private cooperation in supporting efficiency, equity and sustainability, in various transport markets and networks. This prestigious book will serve as an illuminating source of ideas and insights for planners, policy makers and those working on the international research frontier, now and in the future.' - Aura Reggiani, University of Bologna, Italy 'This an outstanding and very needed work. Not only is it comprehensive, it links critical infrastructure to management institutions that are essential to its regulation and effective operations. Rietveld and Stough bring a new and fresh perspective to this centrally important issue. I would recommend the book not only to students and faculty but to the thoughtful practitioner who is interested in the broad issue of institutional sustainability in the light of infrastructure management. Transportation is the focus but the broad issues of institutions is the crux of the analysis. It is the best and most up-to-date work in the field that is empirically based.' - Kingsley E. Haynes, George Mason University, US
