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 consumption and environmental damage. Transport, Land-Use and the Environment contains selected papers from a seminar organized by the Transport and Land Use Special Interest Group of the World Conference on Transport Research Society (WCTRS) and covers fact finding, scenario analysis and modeling. It will serve as an invaluable source for academics, practicing planners, and graduate students, especially those who want to see quantitative comparisons of the impact of alternative policies on urban and regional environments.
