This Special Issue addresses the sustainable provision of high volume transport in developing countries. It is recognised that transportation is vital for economic and social development. However to realise these goals, transportation must be safe, affordable, reliable and accessible to all in society. Transportation also needs to be sustainable without incurring excessive greenhouse gas consequences and environmental impacts. This issue of Sustainability explores these ideals in the developing country context. Contributions are invited which address high volume transport infrastructure and its sustainable management, low carbon transport and inclusivity in high volume transport provision. Theoretical, empirical and review studies are welcome from the researchers and practitioners alike.
