Urban decline and the future of American cities by Katharine L Bradbury( Book )

Road work : a new highway pricing and investment policy by Kenneth A Small( Book )

11 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book the authors propose a comprehensive highway policy to meet the goals of efficiency, equity, and financial soundness. Their policy is based on two economic principles: efficient pricing to regulate demand for highway services and efficient investment to minimize the total public and private cost of providing them. Policy recommendations include a set of pavement-wear taxes for heavy trucks, a set of congestion taxes for all vehicles, and a program of optimal investments in road durability. These proposals should be especially attractive to policymakers because they can be implemented with current technology, offer little threat to the major interest groups, and in the long run will reduce the strain on state and local governments' highway budgets
Futures for a declining city : simulations for the Cleveland area by Katharine L Bradbury( Book )

10 editions published between 1981 and 2014 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Futures for a Declining City: Simulations for the Cleveland Area discusses the processes associated with decrease in urban population or "urban decline” and other measures of urban size or function. This book describes the case study that analyzes what will happen to a declining metropolitan area and its central city if current trends on urban decline continue, and how that outcome might be affected by various policies designed to counteract further loss. This case study focuses on the Cleveland Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area (SMSA) and its central city, Cleveland. The likely future co

The economics of urban transportation by Kenneth A Small( Book )

27 editions published between 2000 and 2020 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This timely new edition of Kenneth A. Small's seminal textbook Urban Transportation Economics, co-authored with Erik T. Verhoef, has been fully updated, covering new areas such as parking policies, reliability of travel times, and the privatization of transportation services, as well as updated treatments of congestion modelling, environmental costs, and transit subsidies."--Publisher
Road pricing for congestion management : a survey of international practice by José A Gómez-Ibáñez( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This synthesis will be of interest to transportation agency administrators and managers, state and regional transportation planners, metropolitan planning organizations, policy makers, transportation economists, traffic engineers, and others concerned with reducing traffic congestion in urban areas. The synthesis describes the experience of several foreign countries that have used road pricing, or congestion pricing, as a means to manage congestion. The synthesis contains discussions of the policy, equity, and implementation issues associated with congestion pricing. Several of the schemes described were planned or implemented as methods to increase roadway funding rather than for congestion management, but have had the effect of changing travel patterns. The case examples describe the congestion management schemes in Singapore, Hong Kong, Norway, Sweden, France, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. This report of the Transportation Research Board also describes the various congestion pricing schemes implemented or proposed that rely on automated or electronic vehicle use charges. The case examples include ring roads, corridors, restricted areas or zones, and areawide applications. The opportunities and cautions for implementing similar congestion pricing measures in the United States are also discussed

Environment and transport in economic modelling by Roberto Roson( )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The analysis of the relationship between transport and environmental policy invites an interdisciplinary treatment and a variety of approaches, and rightly so. An important subset of the approaches used involves economic analysis. Economic approaches often consider pricing policies, attempting to evaluate their effectiveness in comparison with more traditional measures such as `command and control' regulation and directed technological innovation. Another important subset of approaches involves simulation modelling, where key relationships are presented mathematically so that their influence can be quantified and their interrelationships discerned precisely. This book treats the intersection of these two subsets: simulation models with a strong economic content. This intersection defines a broad but powerful way to study environment and transport. Its breadth is illustrated by the wide range of policies treated here, from carbon taxes to speed limits. Its power derives from the way insights into interrelated actions and the role of markets - the strong points of economic theory - are cast into a form suitable for making quantitative predictions about the results of policies. Case studies are used to show how simulation models can be designed and used to quantify the effectiveness of economic policies in terms of transport systems management and environmental protection, the emphasis being on the role of the markets in tracing the many effects that policies have, both anticipated and otherwise

Applied welfare economics with discrete choice models by Harvey S Rosen( )

4 editions published between 1979 and 1981 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economists have been paying increasing attention to the study of situations in which consumers face a discrete rather than a continuous set of choices. Such models are potentially very important in evaluating the impact of government programs upon consumer welfare. But very little has been said in general regarding the tools of applied welfare economics indiscrete choice situations. This paper shows how the conventional methods of applied welfare economics can be modified to handle such cases. It focuses on the computation of the excess burden of taxation, and the evaluation of quality change. The results are applied to stochastic utility models, including the popular cases of probit and logit analysis. Throughout, the emphasis is on providing rigorous guidelines for carrying out applied work
A study to evaluate the effect of reduced greenhouse gas emissions on vehicle miles traveled by Kenneth A Small( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Presents measures of the size of the rebound effect, by which improvements in fuel efficiency of vehicles may cause vehicle travel to increase."--Abstract, report documentation page
Long Run Trends in Transport Demand, Fuel Price Elasticities and Implications of the Oil Outlook for Transport Policy by Kenneth A Small( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper discusses the role of transportation in policies to address energy security and climate change. It focuses on three elements: the impact of energy prices on transport demand, the potential contributions of the transport sector to energy policies, and the interaction between energy and other policy concerns in transport. Transport is relatively unresponsive to broad-based price signals, in particular to changes in prices of fuels, but there nevertheless is considerable scope to improve the fuel efficiency of vehicle fleets. As a result, we should not expect energy policies to trigger dramatic changes in the nature of transport systems. Furthermore, this unresponsiveness suggests that it is relatively costly to reduce energy use in transport, and thus that efficient policies will probably not extract as much energy savings (in percentage terms) from transport as from other sectors. Reducing energy use in transport can be done with price incentives or with regulatory measures. But if reducing climate change is a primary goal, measures that mandate conservation need to be accompanied by others that make fossil fuels economically unattractive - for example broad-based carbon taxes. Otherwise, fossil-fuel reserves will remain economically usable and therefore will constitute a future source of carbon dioxide emissions. We argue that other transport problems, notably congestion, local air pollution, and accidents, are associated with considerably higher marginal external costs than are climate change and energy security. It follows that policies to deal directly with these other problems deserve high priority, regardless of energy policies
