About this book

Buses can and should be the cornerstone of urban transportation. They offer affordable mobility and can connect

citizens with every aspect of their lives. But in the US, they have long been an afterthought in budgeting and planning.

 

Transit expert Steven Higashide uses real‑world stories of reform to show us what a successful bus system looks like.

Higashide explains how to marshal the public in support of better buses and argues that better bus systems will create

better cities for all citizens.

 

With a compelling narrative and actionable steps, Better Buses, Better Cities describes how decision‑makers,

philanthropists, activists, and public agency leaders can work together to make the bus a win in any city.
