Summary Around the world, mass transit is struggling to compete with the private automobile. Yet a number of metropolitan areas have in recent decades managed to mount cost-effective and resource-conserving transit services that provide alternatives to car travel. What sets these places apart? Noted transportation expert Robert Cervero provides an on-the-ground look at more than a dozen mass transit success stories, introducing the concept of the "transit metropolis"--a region where a workable fit exists between transit services and urban form.
