Book Description. This title includes a number of Open Access chapters. This new book takes a nuanced look at building a sustainable transportation infrastructure and provides an overview of the harmful effect of various modes of transportation on the environment.
The environmental impact of transportation is. The indicators measure how the transportation environment affects health in the following areas: Safety. Motor vehicle crashes are one of the leading causes of death in the United States. By providing transportation options and improving roadway facilities, transportation agencies can reduce the incidence of motor vehicle crashes.
The book deals with urban transportation planning in light of environmental sustainability and social equity. It begins with a review of the Indian urban transportation system and the issues surrounding it, and discusses the alternatives and policy directions that are being considered.
The first nine chapters cover a specific conceptual dimension of transport geography, such as networks, modes, terminals, and urban transportation. In addition to these conventional topics, emerging issues such as globalization, supply chain management, information technologies, energy, and the environment are also thoroughly discussed.
Transportation Research Part D: Transport and Environment publishes original research and review articles on the environmental impacts of transportation, policy responses to those impacts, and their implications for the design, planning, and management of transportation systems.
It covers all aspects of the interaction between transportation and the environment, from localized to global impacts.
The environmental impact of transport is significant because transport is a major user of energy, and burns most of the world's creates air pollution, including nitrous oxides and particulates, and is a significant contributor to global warming through emission of carbon dioxide.
