Tutor information is taken from the Module Catalogue

There is no single text covering the entire material on this module with an adequate level of depth but the closest is:

White, P.R. (2013), Public transport : its planning, management and operation, 6 th Edition, Routledge Natural and Built Environment Series. This text provides a good introduction to the key topics from a UK context. There is a list of references at the end of each chapter, which is often helpful in finding additional information. 

A useful secondary source is:

Vuchic, V.R. (2005), Urban transit : operations, planning and economics, Planning and Economics, John Wiley.
