This Reference is designed to introduce transportation practitioners to the underlying economic realities of their profession. Good engineering judgment, which is vital to defensible and optimal decision-making, relies on good economic judgment.
by Jean-Paul Rodrigue (ed.) - Routledge
The third edition provides an overview of the spatial aspects of transportation. This text provides greater discussion of security, energy, green logistics, as well as new and updated case studies, a revised content structure, and new figures.
The book is aimed at undergraduate civil engineering students, though the material may provide a useful review for practitioners and graduate students in transportation. The book is divided into three main parts: planning, operations, and design.

This book describes how the flow pattern throughout an urban network can be determined by modeling two mechanisms -- travel decisions and congestion. The analysis here looks at transportation level of service (or travel disutility) and flows.
