Dear Colleagues,The ongoing trend of urbanization has led to the accommodation of more than half of the world’s population in urban areas, and this percentage is predicted to rise to about 70% by 2050. This urban population growth would, in turn, have great impact on human activities, mainly urban transportation, which, in turn, impacts the Earth’s ecosystem.
Geo-information science and Earth observation provides valuable data and technologies for understanding and enhancing transportation processes. Within this context, and under the umbrella of neo-geography, geo-crowd sourcing, Location Based Social Networks (LBSN) and Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) have recently became interesting sources for technologies that could potentially improve former urban systems and processes through providing up-to-date and detailed information. We welcome scholars to share their research on challenges and solutions of neo-geography and crowdsourcing technologies for Sustainable Urban Transportation.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
