Transport for suburbia: Beyond the automobile age, by Paul Mees
AbstractThis book review summarizes and evaluates Transport for Suburbia: Beyond the Automobile Age, by Paul Mees. The argument in Transport for Suburbia is that density is not a necessary prerequisite for an effective transit system, and that transfers can be used as a tool to expand the scope of a transit network. Mees presents this argument and his suggestions for improving transit service through a series of narratives about car culture, land use, and best and worst case transit system scenarios.
