Description - Transportation and Sustainable Campus Communities by Will Toor
Colleges and universities across North America are facing difficult questions about automobile use and transportation. Lack of land for new parking lots and the desire to preserve air quality are but a few of the factors leading institutions toward a new vision based upon expanded transit access, better bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and incentives that encourage less driving."Transportation and Sustainable Campus Communities" presents a comprehensive examination of techniques available to manage transportation in campus communities. Authors Will Toor and Spenser W. Havlick give readers the understanding they need to develop alternatives to single-occupancy vehicles, and sets forth a series of case studies that show how transportation demand management programs have worked in a variety of campus communities, ranging from small towns to large cities. The case studies in "Transportation and Sustainable Campus Communities" highlight what works and what doesn't, as well as describing the programmatic and financial aspects involved.No other book has surveyed the topic and produced viable options for reducing the parking, pollution, land use, and traffic problems that are created by an over-reliance on automobiles by students, faculty, and staff. "Transportation and Sustainable Campus Communities" is a unique source of information and ideas for anyone concerned with transportation planning and related issues.
