Better Buses, Better Cities

How to Plan, Run, and Win the Fight for Effective Transit

Island Press

"Better Buses, Better Cities is likely the best book ever written on improving bus service in the United States." —  Beyond Chron
"The ultimate roadmap for how to make the bus great again in your city."  — Spacing
The definitive volume on how to make [the] bus frequent, fast, reliable, welcoming, and respected..."  —Streetsblog

Imagine a bus system that is fast, frequent, and reliable—what would that change about your city?

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.
