Urban Transportation and Air Pollution synthesizes the state-of-the-art methods for estimating near-road concentrations of roadway emissions. The book provides the information needed to make estimates using methods based on a minimal set of model inputs that can be applied by a wide range of users in many situations. The book begins by discussing the methods to estimate traffic emission under numerous urban driving conditions, then explores the uncertainty of emission models because real-world emissions can vary significantly. The book describes the models that account for the effects of road configurations, such as near-road solid barriers. Addressing transportation-related environmental issues are extremely important worldwide as urban areas are constantly searching for ways to mitigate impacts from transportation sources. Dispersion models are critically useful for estimating the impact of roadway emissions in cities, however many are complex and require detailed inputs not often available. Accompanied by an overview of the meteorology that governs dispersion in cities, the book concludes with presenting dispersion models that link traffic emissions with near road concentrations in urban environments. Compiles and synthesizes into one reference the state of the science methods for estimating roadway emissions Demonstrates with clear examples how the modeling methods reduce uncertainties in real-world problems Emphasizes how local-scale, semi-empirical, steady-state modeling can be applied using only a small set of inputs Offers an overview of the meteorology that governs air pollution dispersion in cities

October 1998 A policy considered in isolation may be ineffective because of the countervailing impact of other factors. And the success of a policy may itself lead to perverse incentives. Thus it is important to design complementary policies that support the original goal. Controlling air pollution from urban transport requires attention to land use planning, transport needs and modes, and air quality. Air quality is declining in urban areas, in part because of the rapid motorization of societies worldwide. To combat

Air pollution from urban travel is influenced by travel demand -- by its distribution among models, by congestion levels, and by the characteristics of vehicles and fuels. How well do existing models evaluate the effect of different policies, especially on welfare and on air pollution?

Transport-related air pollution is increasingly contributing to environmental health risks in many developing country cities. The social costs of poor urban quality can be significant, making this issue an immediate priority. Long-term measures for dealing with the problem include urban planning, and traffic demand management. This paper however, focuses primarily on cost-effective measures, that are feasible to implement, and that can bring measurable results in the short to medium term. There is a tendency in the environment sector, to focus

Much is expected of private financing to help meet the infrastructure requirements of the rapidly growing East Asian economies. Although private financing grew briskly during the 1990s, it represents only a small share of all infrastructure investment in the region (between 12 and 18 percent). This monograph draws on experience in a number of countries in East Asia, as well as Australia, Chile, and India, to analyze the impediments to and prospects for private financing of infrastructure. The chapters discuss the choices

The book deals with urban transportation planning in light of environmental sustainability and social equity. It begins with a review of the Indian urban transportation system and the issues surrounding it, and discusses the alternatives and policy directions that are being considered. It examines all the environmental issues arising out of transportation as a sector and assesses the alternatives that can be considered to improve sustainability. Further, the book not only analyses transportation modes that cater to the travel needs
