Product description

Review

"The deeper you get into Walker''s book, the more persuasive he becomes."--Lloyd Alter "Treehugger "

"Excellent."--Eric Jaffe "Atlantic Cities "

"Anyone who has ridden transit on a regular basis will appreciate the points Jarrett makes. Especially his matrix showing the seven demands of useful transit service. Transit designers must take these demands into consideration if they hope to compete for riders."--Matt Johnson"Greater Greater Washington" (02/01/2012)

""Human Transit" is a spirited guide - prescriptive but with a righteous dash of polemic- to what we get wrong about transit...[It is] full of delectably geeky details."--Tom Vanderbilt "Slate "

"The deeper you get into Walker's book, the more persuasive he becomes."--Lloyd Alter "Treehugger "

""Human Transit" provides practical guidance for urban public transit system development in prose that is clear and entertaining without being simplistic. This book should be useful to anybody involved in public transit planning, design, or advocacy."
--Todd Litman "Victoria Transport Policy Institute "

"Human Transit provides practical guidance for urban public transit system development in prose that is clear and entertaining without being simplistic. This book should be useful to anybody involved in public transit planning, design, or advocacy."
--Todd Litman "Victoria Transport Policy Institute "

"This book gives professionals, pundits and the citizenry the tools to have conversations that lead to real solutions rather than confrontations."
--Terry Lee-Williams "Transport and Access Manager, City of Sydney, Australia "

"Jarrett Walker pulls transit out of its specialist silo and treats it in layman's terms, as an embodiment of shared values and a partial answer to the vital question 'what kind of city do you want?' Human Transit is an engrossing narrative that explains the real choices that informed citizens need to make."
--Ken Greenberg "author of Walking Home: the Life and Lessons of a City Builder "

"Intelligent, refreshing, balanced and richly mindful of the unique settings of individual communities."
--Douglas MacDonald "former Secretary, Washington State Department of Transportation "
