Transportation planning plays a key role as a lifeline for any society. It comprises applications of science and art, where a great deal of judgment coupled with its technical elements is required to arrive at a meaningful decision in order to develop transportation infrastructure facilities for the community. It, thereby, helps in achieving a safer, faster, comfortable, convenient, economical, sustainable and environment-friendly movement of people and goods traffic.

In this context, the book has been written and now updated in the second edition dealing with the basic principles and fundamentals of transportation planning. It also keeps abreast of the current techniques practices and policies conducted in transportation planning.

Exploiting a systematic approach avoiding prolixity, this book will prove to be a vade mecum for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of civil engineering and transportation engineering. Besides, the book is of immense benefit to the students opting a course on Mater of Planning conducted in various institutes.
