Containing studies from all over the world Urban Transport XXII consists of papers presented at the 22nd International Conference on Urban Transport and the Environment. The conference has been successfully held annually since it first started in Southampton in 1995.
Transportation in urban areas, with its related environmental and social impacts, is a topic of significant concern for policymakers in both municipal and central government and for the urban citizens who need effective and efficient transport systems. Urban transport systems require considerable studies to devise and then safeguard their operational use, maintenance and safety. Transportation systems produce significant environmental impacts and can enhance or degrade the quality of life in urban centres.
A distinctive element of the Urban Transport and the Environment series is the interaction between academic and practical perspectives where theories and ideas are debated and their practical applications rigorously tested. Clearly the issue of providing effective and efficient transport systems in the urban setting remains an acute challenge with financial, political and environmental constraints limiting the ability of transport system planners and operators to deliver the high quality outcomes expected by the public.
Topics covered include: Environmental impact; Environmentally friendly transport modes; Transport strategies; Public transport systems; Transport modelling; Urban transport simulation; Transport safety and security; Infrastructure; Intermodel transport systems; Port and airport cities; Land use and transport integration; Transport policy and regulations; Experiences from emerging countries; Non-motorized transport models; Intelligent transport systems; Electromobility; Mobility and urban space; Sustainability and resilience; Emerging transport systems; Energy efficiency.
