'I want to thank the editors for bringing this project to fruition and compiling in one volume contributions which will interest both transport specialists and economists. Engineers and management experts will benefit from the summaries, and rigorous analysis, of recent advances in economic research applied to their fields of interest. Researchers and students in economics will see how economic theory can be applied in a specific context to enrich the study of one sector, transport. In this way, the handbook contributes to the cross-fertilisation of different areas of knowledge and constitutes an important development in the advancement of that knowledge.'- From the foreword by Daniel L. McFadden, 2000 Nobel Laureate in Economics Bringing together insights and perspectives from close to 70 of the world's leading experts in the field, this timely Handbook provides an up-to-date guide to the most recent and state-of-the-art advances in transport economics. The comprehensive coverage includes topics such as the relationship between transport and the spatial economy, recent advances in travel demand analysis, the external costs of transport, investment appraisal, pricing, equity issues, competition and regulation, the role of public - private partnerships and the development of policy in local bus services, rail, air and maritime transport. This Handbook is designed both for use on postgraduate and advanced undergraduate courses and as a reference for anyone working in the field. It also complements the textbook Principles of Transport Economics. Contributors include: S.P. Anderson, H. Andersson, R. Arnott, B. Bartin, L. Basso, A. Behar, M. Ben Akiva, Y. Berechman, M. Beuthe, C.R. Bhat, J. Brocker, M.R. Brooks, K. Button, C.G. Chorus, J. Clougherty, M. Delucchi, A. de Palma, A. Estache, R. Friedrich, J. Gifford, D. Gillen, D. Graham, D. Hensher, E. Iossa, S.
