Over the last sixteen years, the Wessex Institute of Technology has convened annually the International Conference on Urban Transport and the Environment in order to facilitate the sharing of research on a subject of growing importance to cities around the world. Urban transportation systems can enhance or degrade the quality of urban life by their impact on the environment as well as their operation and accessibility. Municipal authorities put a priority on transportation systems that minimize ecological and environmental impacts, are sustainable, and help to improve the socio-economic fabric of the city. At the same time, systems must ensure the safety and security of the public while retaining system efficiency.
All of these concerns are addressed by research presented at the conference and contained in this book. Topics covered include: Transport Modelling and Simulation; Urban Transport Planning and Management; Public Transport Systems; Land Use and Transport Integration; Traffic Integration and Control; Transportation Demand Analysis; Advanced Transport Systems; Intelligent Transport Systems; Safety and Security; Safety of Users in Road Evacuation.
