Investigating the interplay between transport, land use and the environment: a review of the literature|
Yigitcanlar, T. & Kamruzzaman, M.
Integration of land use and transport decisions
to achieve sustainable travel behavior has been considered
an integral element for sustainable urban development.
However, before the popularity of urban
sustainability concept, land use and transport interaction
had been scrutinized as strictly separate entities in the
urban planning and development domains. Fortunately,
today the concept of sustainability has been pushed to the
forefront of policy-making and politics as the world
wakes up to the impacts of climate change and the effects
of the rapid urbanization and modern urban lifestyles.
The paper therefore aims to highlight the importance of
the interplay between transport, land use and the environment.
This review paper provides evidence from the
literature including the Transport, Land Use and the
Environment Special Issue contributions and global best
practice cases to showcase new empirical approaches and
investigations from different parts of the world that
contribute to the wealth of knowledge in exploring the
interplay between transport, land use and the environment
