The complexity of transportation systems and their negative social and environmental externalities, are today at the centre of attention. This book focuses on the impacts of institutions and regulatory systems on transport systems and travel behaviour. While institutions appear to play an important role in the economic success of many countries, this book considers the extent to which they also support sustainable development.
Written by leading academics from around the world, the book gives an international perspective on the role of institutions and regulations regarding national transport policy, local sustainable transport, international transport and freight transport.
