"From Mobility to Accessibility will have lasting influence on urban justice, and be of great interest for courses in regional transportation planning, policy, and planning theory."--Gwen Urey, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona
"This book convincingly argues why planners need to move away from planning faster transport, particularly by car, and inject accessibility thinking, metrics, and models into their planning practice. A must read for any transportation professional."--Karst Geurs, Professor of Transport Planning, University of Twente, the Netherlands
"Transportation planners today are declaring that accessibility to opportunities is more important than moving traffic. Many are adopting this approach, but Levine, Grengs, and Merlin have taken the deepest dive into the emerging paradigm. They address fully and clearly its history, methods, and consequences."--Martin Wachs, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Urban Planning, UCLA
