Climate change is a serious problem each country confronts today. Since the Copenhagen conference (The United Nations Climate Change conference, 2009), energy saving and emission reduction has become a hot issue around the world. Among the numerous and complex solutions, reducing CO2 (carbon dioxide) emission is one of the most challenging but feasible tasks in solving this problem.
Transportation industry, which takes a considerable proportion of CO2 emission, should implement practical methods to make contributions to CO2 reduction. Reducing CO2 emission in transportation, covers various research topics including travel demand management, green transport network design, sustainability in urban planning, and application of low emission vehicles.
Papers selected for this special issue will be subject to a rigorous peer review with the aim of highlighting the most significant recent developments on the topics of reducing CO2 emission in transportation and applying these to the planning, design, operations, control, management, maintenance and rehabilitation of transport systems, services and components. Contributions containing new insights and findings in this field are welcome. There are no limitations with respect to specific topic, while real-world applications are especially encouraged.
