Editorial Reviews


"It's hard to imagine a more comprehensive survey of transportation history than The Transportation Experience. The book guides readers from the days of steam engines and turnpikes to those of high-speed trains and robot-driven cars-blending top academic insight with colorful biographical bites. Whether your interest is infrastructure, public policy, transport theory, or just travel in general, you'll grow wiser from the journey." -- Eric Jaffe, author of The King's Best Highway

"Everything you wanted to know about transportation is in this book. It is not only a comprehensive look back at the transit methods that built the nation, but a look forward based on how the lessons from the past can be applied to the modern metropolitan economies. This book could not come at a better time." -- Robert Puentes, Director, Metropolitan Infrastructure Initiative, Brookings Institution
