Whilst most historians agree that the relationship between the development of public transport and urban growth is a crucial one, the precise nature of this relationship is still very much open to question. This collection of essays offers a further step in unravelling this complex situation by looking at how collective forms of transport have contributed to the spatial and social evolution of towns and cities in various countries since the mid 19th century.
