Transport for suburbia : beyond the automobile age by Paul Mees( Book )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The need for effective public transport is greater than ever in the 21st century. With countries like China and India moving towards mass-automobility, we face the prospects of an environmental and urban health disaster unless alternatives are found. It is time to move beyond the automobile age. But while public transport has worked well in the dense cores of some big cities, the problem is that most residents of developed countries now live in dispersed suburbs and smaller cities and towns. These places usually have little or no public transport, and most transport commentators have given up on the task of changing this: it all seems too hard. This book argues that the secret of 'European-style' public transport lies in a generalizable model of network planning that has worked in places as diverse as rural Switzerland, the Brazilian city of Curitiba and the Canadian cities of Toronto and Vancouver. It shows how this model can be adapted to suburban, exurban and even rural areas to provide a genuine alternative to the car, and outlines the governance, funding and service planning policies that underpin the success of the world's best public transport systems."--Back cover
A very public solution : transport in the dispersed city by Paul Mees( Book )

"In A Very Public Solution, Paul Mees compares Melbourne's public transport system with the highly successful system in Toronto - a 'dispersed' city very like Melbourne with its suburban sprawl - and sheds new light on a century-old debate." "A Very Public Solution is for everyone concerned with urban sustainability and our growing traffic problems."--Jacket
The public city : essays in honour of Paul Mees( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Mees' urban ideal counted on watchful, confident and well-informed citizenry to work collectively in a quest for fair and just cities. As such, The Public City is largely a critique of neo-liberalism and its arguably negative influence on urban prospects. As Mees explained it, neo-liberal urbanism was much more than a political aberration; it was a threat that imposed many costly failures in an age overshadowed by grave ecological challenges. Fifteen of Australia and New Zealand's leading urban scholars, including Professor Emeritus Jean Hillier and Professor Brendon Gleeson, have contributed to this collection. The Public City includes a foreword by the late Professor Sir Peter Hall, a world leader in urban planning from Britain. Kenneth Davidson, one of Australia's top economic columnists, has also contributed a chapter. The collective works in this book extend beyond an analysis of urban patterns to provide a blueprint for the improvement of civic and institutional purpose in the creation of the public city
