Jarett Walker is a transit consultant who has distilled his many years of experience into a framework for thinking about mass transit in general. Walker takes that experience and distills it into discrete topics with real world examples. This book reads more like a textbook in the sense that Walker has generalized many of the issues he has seen repeatedly and can then focus more on the bigger picture or how a particular aspect of mass transit fits into the transportation plan for the city as a whole. These examples were nice but made me think a lot about my own city and how they have dealt with these issues. In an ideal world there would be an additional book for each major city that covered how that city approached these problems. ( )
