Call for Abstracts for a new Edited Book

Preparing for the New Era of Transport Policies  Learning from Experience

Hyper urbanization, climate change, and demographic and societal changes are some of the megatrends that have imposed pressure on the transport networks and set obstacles to sustainable mobility. For most of its history, the transport sector has remained largely unchanged, characterised by slow incremental innovations due to the costly infrastructure. Technological advancement, the availability of big data, and the new information and communication technologies (ICT) increasingly foster the development of new mobility concepts for more efficient and safe use of vehicles, optimisation of the transport network, better infrastructure utilisation, smarter travel choices, and seamless trips. At the same time, all these also increase the uncertainty of what will be the shape of our future transportation system.


Against this background, several policies have been imposed in passenger and freight transport to accelerate innovation adoption and contribute to the vision of smart and sustainable mobility. In this Volume, we would like to bring together and assess the successful, but also the unsuccessful practices and policies from around the world, learn from these experience, and prepare the ground for the new era in transport sector, this of autonomous and connected vehicles.  The objective of this book is to provide policy makers, planners, and researchers, documentation and lessons learned from various experience around the world to help them design a more sustainable transportation system for the future taking into account societal and technological changes.


This book will be the first volume of a new Elsevier Series on Advances in Transport Policy and Planning. The Series editor is Prof. Bert van Wee.

Scope of the Volume
This Volume focuses on successful and unsuccessful practices and policies in the area of passenger and freight transport around the world in regards, but not limited, to:

-       Data collection techniques, open data frameworks and processing of open and real-time data

-       Traffic planning, operations, optimisation and management

-       Demand management strategies and travel behaviour

-       Pricing policies and revenue management strategies

-       Opportunities and challenges derived from sharing economy and the Internet of Things

-       Integrated mobility and mobility as a service (MaaS)

-       Plug-in Electric vehicles and charging infrastructure

-       Energy consumption and climate change

-       Investment on transport sector and on sustainable solutions

-       Road safety

-       Frameworks for measuring impact of policies
