    Mintesnot G. Woldeamanuel is an associate professor of urban studies and planning at California State University Northridge (CSUN). He was an assistant professor in the Planning and Community Development Program of Saint Cloud State University, and a research fellow in the Transportation Research Institute of the German Aerospace Center (DLR). Regional transportation plans in the United States have been shaped not only by transportation policy but also by environmental and civil rights legislation, funding constraints, a shift in orientation from construction to systems management, and in many urban areas, growing housing problems and market and stakeholder interest in transit.

    A chapter on United States planning discusses the continuing trends of urban dispersal and social polarisation, the treatment of climate change, the rise of edge cities and the decline of rustbelt cities, as well as initiatives in new urbanism, land use planning and transportation policies. Gary Toth, in Driving Climate Change, Evolving Transportation Approach to Solving Congestion. Transportation agencies in the United States have historically been reluctant to address transportation planning using strategies that influence land use. Most shared the belief that the love affair that exists in the United States between drivers and their automobiles would undermine any.

    Transportation is arguably the backbone of urban life; without it, activities in cities grind to a halt. Transportation is also the source of many seemingly intractable urban problems, namely, congestion, pollution, inequality, and reliance on fossil fuels.   [PDF] Urban Sprawl in Western Europe and the United States (Urban Planning and Environment) Full.
