Transport Planning, a viable integrated multimodal citywide network »,
by B.I Singal, Former Director General, IUT India
Congestion, lack of mobility and rising air pollution in our cities are becoming areas of serious concern for all stakeholders: authorities, operators and commuters alike. It is also widely accepted that augmentation of public transport (PT) both in quality and quantity will provide relief. A critical issue in this context is the choice of a particular PT mode for a city. Comprehensive information on various modes, aspects of planning a city-wide PT network and choice of mode is not easily available at one place to students, planners and city officials. This book is an attempt to bridge this gap.
This book is based on authors direct experience in planning, design and implementation of urban transport projects particularly public transport projects in India and abroad, in the overall context of urban mobility. The content of the book is largely at a conceptual level and brings out the finer points in planning. The book is divided into five parts, i.e. modes of public transport, planning a citywide public transport network, planning road-based modes, planning rail transit and other planning issues.
