Abstract: The relationship between spatial urban form and transportation is a core research agenda in the domain of many academic disciplines including geography, planning, civil engineering, sociology, architecture, and urban design. While numerous publications have addressed the theoretical and empirical evidence of interactions between the built environment and transportation, they are scattered around because of its multi-disciplinary nature. Spatial Planning, Urban Form and Sustainable Transport is a collection of work by transportation professionals edited by Katie Williams, where the particular focus is to disassemble urban form to find how to best reduce automobile trips and develop sustainable transport.
