Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Special Issue “Transportation Technique, Management and Practice: Sustainability and Safety” is focused on two contemporary challenges of transportation, sustainability and safety. Both issues are different aspects of transportation with quite different aims, but cannot be regarded as in contradiction to one another. Recently, due to the uncertain geopolitical situation, the future of the whole economy is unpredictable to some degree. However, this does not mean that concerns about the quality of transportation can be cast aside. New technologies and ideas allow for new solutions for transportation, but they also entail new threats. This is because the far-reaching effects of newly applied transportation solutions are not yet fully understood. This can lead to the unawareness of some threats. Identifying and suppressing these threats also represent significant challenges for both researchers and practitioners. Since the matter is complex, many interdependences need to be revealed. It must be taken into account that technical and management approaches are bound together and are both equally important. Thus, the Special Issue should draw the attention of scientists, engineers, practitioners and transportation decision makers.

Sustainable transportation is a term that covers many aspects of technology, management and policy. Social and environmental impacts should also be taken into account. Some of the proposed ideas may require changes in travelers’ behavior. Therefore, this Special Issue “Transportation Technique, Management and Practice: Sustainability and Safety” welcomes papers that cover detailed solutions, wide area systems or theoretical models of the discussed problems, which will finally lead to increasing safety levels of modern sustainable transportation and will mean that transportation is less vulnerable to emerging threats.

Topics covered in the Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Sustainable transportation;
  • New ideas of transportation solutions that focus on safety issues;
  • Transportation safety and transportation safety management;
  • Formal methods and models of safety issues for sustainable transportation;
  • Emerging solutions to safety issues for sustainable transportation;
  • Transportation safety policies;
  • New challenges in transportation safety.
