Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cities worldwide face increasingly unsustainable mobility patterns as they become more dependent on the car. Urban transport becomes an essential challenge for local policy makers needing innovative policies sustained and supported by scientific research evidence that might help in the fight against traffic congestion, environmental degradation, climate change and health and safety perils. This Special Issue includes academic works providing evidence on new paradigms of sustainable transportation policy for cities. Sustainable transportation covers environmental, social and economic dimensions and require a multi-disciplinary approach to examine, explore and critically engage with issues and advances leading to more sustainable cities. A variety of topics and policy measures are welcome: reduction of fossil fuels’ dependence, promotion of renewal and regenerated energy technology—as electric vehicles and their challenges and opportunities—regulation and planning, provision of new transportation modes, collaborative and shared economy initiatives, etc. The issue aims to encourage an informed and rigorous debate on sustainable mobility and transport policies in cities.
