Teachers and students alike will be pleased with the many empirical case studies that illustrate how to put the theory and concepts developed to practical use.' - Professor Erik T. Verhoef, VU University Amsterdam
 
'This book stands apart from its competitors by providing a thorough explanation of the established economic framework and its relevance to the transport sector and to recent policy initiatives. I would recommend it for both undergraduate and MSc level courses in transport.' Dr Corinne Mulley, Newcastle University
