I appreciate how new mobilities (like micro-transit and pneumatic tubes) are folded into a broad analysis of many existing modes, strategies, and solutions. It's very hard to cover this much ground on this topic in 150 pages, and it's done well here. The scope and sequence helps to bring readers into a conceptual framework for how mobility solutions can be evaluated both individually and as parts of a system. I believe this can help anyone who is trying to support smarter mobility planning decis ...more

This book describes the benefits and costs of a variety of new transportation-related technologies, including electric bikes and scooters, carsharing, electric vehicles, and many more. Litman concludes that there are trade-offs between speed and cost: the fastest modes are generally the most expensive, and thus should not be encouraged by government. This work is admirably concise, and can easily be finished in a day or less.
