Special Issue "Travel Behaviour and Sustainable Transport of the Future"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2018).
Interests: analysis of travel behaviour; sustainable and active travel; car ownership; environmental impacts of transport; privacy and security
This is a call for papers to be considered for a special issue entitled “Travel Behaviour and Sustainable Transport of the Future” in the journal Sustainability.
Emerging data sources, vehicle technologies, mobility services, and autonomous vehicles constitute key dimensions of how travel will be analysed, experienced, and impact our everyday lives and those of future generations. New research questions emerge around how to compile, store, and analyse these data to better understand travel behaviour and its environmental, social, and economic impacts. New vehicle technologies and mobility services raise questions around their regulatory and operational frameworks, potential market share, and purpose of use (e.g., commute vs. leisure). Most importantly, new vehicle technologies and mobility services are expected to have notable implications for cleaner, more efficient, safer, and equitable travel.
We aim to publish high-quality research articles on topics related, but not limited to:
- Challenges and opportunities in the analysis of travel behaviour in the era of new data sources
- Conceptual pieces on the assessment of environmental, social, and economic implications as a result of travel behaviour
- Empirical work on the interrelation between travel behaviour and environmental, social, and economic impacts
- Future scenario analysis considering the potential uptake of cleaner vehicles or travel services (or both)
- Approaches for the integrated assessment of travel behaviour, emissions, air quality, and energy consumption
