9780857246110: Managing Urban Mobility Systems

Urban mobility is currently a major problem all over the world. Space is limited, and individuals aim for a level of quality in mobility that is only achieved by largely motorised solutions, which have a detrimental effect on the urban environment. Careful analysis of urban mobility systems across the world reveals that consistent and effective policies can only be defined and implemented if the various components of the system and their interrelations are considered. This book addresses the problem of managing urban mobility systems in a novel way by considering the complexity and diversity of the conurbation and agents involved in a UMS, putting forward the evidence that urban mobility must be managed at system level. The value of this book lies in bringing together a sound theoretical approach to urban mobility systems supported by evidence from several cities across the world where this approach was either implemented or at least assessed, together with clear instructional guidelines. It constitutes a handbook for practitioners, politicians, researchers and students of urban mobility management.

Review:

For this 2005 PhD dissertation in transportation at the Lisbon Technical University, Macário (Instituto Superior Téchnico, Lisbon, Portugal) drew on research on urban mobility she had already been conducting for a decade. She argues that a city's mobility policies can only be effective if all the components of the system, and their interrelations, are considered. Urban mobility systems include not only public transportation, she says, but all services, infrastructure, and traffic management that help people move around. At the same time, she contends, improvement at the company or agency level are pretty ineffective unless they are made within the framework of, and in conjunction with, an overall transportation policy.
