Urban Transport Futures

Series Editor: William Riggs, University of San Francisco

Urban Transport Futures explores how changing technologies and transport innovations are influencing possibilities for our cities and city futures across the globe.

Books in the series will be international in focus and examine the ways that urban transport intersects with technological evolution, sustainability and climate change and social justice.

The series is seeking innovative, cutting-edge research that will inform the development of urban transport polices and ensure that innovations in urban development are a force for social good. It will provide academics, policymakers and city planners with the insights and tools to ensure that future transport systems are sustainable, equitable and inclusive.

Bringing together experts, scholars and industry insiders across multiple geographies, this series will lead the debates on challenges and opportunities for urban transport.
