The newest addition to the RGS-IBG book series, How Cities Learn: Tracing Bus Rapid Transit in South Africa, is now available to order online.
Written by Dr Astrid Wood (Newcastle University), the book traces the circulation of bus rapid transit (BRT) to understand how and why it was widely adopted in South Africa. It does this through placing the South African case study in the context of wider moves towards BRT systems and compares the effects in South Africa with other parts of the world. The book makes a significant contribution to the study of geography, politics, sociology and transportation, as well as urban planning practises.
How Cities Learn is available to order now from the Wiley website, where you can also read an excerpt for free.
