Human Transit by Jarrett Walker

Winter break is coming up. That means it is time to read. It is also time to be-gift your favorite transportationists with books. A student asked what transportation books he should read. That of course depends. I have read and liked the following.

    1. Human Transit – Jarrett Walker [review]
    2. The Transit Metropolis – Robert Cervero
    3. Down the Tube: the Battle for London’s Underground – Christian Wolmar (really anything by Christian Wolmar, hopefully the next Mayor of London)
    4. Mr. Beck’s Underground Map – Ken Garland (really anything on London by Capital Transport)
    5. Twin Cities by Trolley: The Streetcar Era in Minneapolis and St. Paul – John Diers
