Review:

“Historically, transportation planning has focused on the constrained spaces of city centers, says Cervero. . .  but increasingly, once quiet suburban streets are becoming busy and crowded as office buildings and other work sites relocate out of city centers. This was his perspective in 1985 as he was writing the 1986 first edition. After 27 years, he says, the typical commute now begins and ends in suburbs — mostly different ones — and the transportation system designed to carry people to city centers then back home to suburbia is no longer adequate.”

Book News

Suburban Gridlock describes the rapidly developing mobility crisis in suburban areas caused by an explosion in nonresidential construction and development of large office complexes outside the traditional central city... Robert Cervero’s goal in writing this book was to “call the looming mobility crisis facing our suburbs to the attention of the nation’s developers, city planners, and transportation professions in hopes of stimulating both dialogue and creative response”... Readers of the book are treated to an extremely well researched, organized, and presented analysis.”

—James H. Miller, Transportation Journal

Suburban Gridlock is a significant contribution to the expanding literature on the economic geography of the outer city. Cervero has diligently organized his multidimensional subject, has presented a compelling discussion of its issues based on well-drawn case studies, and achieves his goals of calling attention to the mobility crisis and of “stimulating both dialogue and creative responses”... I highly recommend this lively, thoughtful, and remarkably current book to everyone investigating the changing late-twentieth-century American city.”

—Peter O. Muller, The Geographical Review



"One of the most important books to emanate from urban studies during the past decade."

—Annals of the Association of American Geographers
