The book can serve as an ideal textbook for both undergraduate and graduate courses in Urban Transportation Planning. It fills an appropriate and important niche by giving proper emphasis to what "actors" and activities can influence the quality of the planning process and its eventual impact on a community. The incorporation of major legislation (ISTEA, CAAA, etc.) and other developments (GIS, traffic impact analysis, 1000 Friends of Oregon, etc.)that affect transportation planning distinguishes the text among others in the area.
