Urban Transportation and Mobile ICT: Mobility, Travel Behavior, and Public Policy analyzes the impacts of the massive diffusion of mobile information and communication technologies (ICT) on individual transportation behaviors, while also examining the transportation industry and urban planning public policy. The book provides the definitions of emerging concepts, such as connected mobility, connected places, and shared modes, while also presenting a systematic and rigorous analysis of the changes triggered by the diffusion of mobile ICTs. In addition, it examines the implications for transportation and land-use planning research and policymaking.
Users will find this work a benchmark on which changes in a mobility system can be assessed and anticipated.
