Jeff dedicates his portion of this book to his three sons, Joshua, Timothy and Nathanael Kenworthy who are expected to be shining examples of the use of transit, walking and cycling!
Preston dedicates his portion of this book's effort to his children, their children, to his aunt, the late Reva Schiller Springer, who introduced him in childhood to the joys of walking in Lincoln Park and Downtown Chicago, to his Detroit and Boston comrade-in-feet the late Clifford Craine, and to his beloved principessa, Nancy Elena van Deusen.

"This essential multi-authored work reflects a new sustainable transportation planning paradigm. It explores the concepts of sustainable development and sustainable transportation, describes practical techniques for comprehensive evaluation, provides tools for multi-modal transport planning, and presents innovative mobility management solutions to transportation problems. Students of various disciplines, planners, policymakers and concerned citizens will find many of its provocative ideas and approaches of considerable value as they engage in the processes of understanding and changing transportation towards greater sustainability. This text reflects a fundamental change in transportation decision making. It focuses on accessibility rather than mobility, emphasizes the need to expand the range of options and impacts considered in analysis, and provides practical tools to allow planners, policy makers and the general public to determine the best solution to the transportation problems facing a community."--Publisher's description.… (more)
