Transportation management is a key area of the urban planning process that is strictly related to the development and design of land use and the built environment. Transport infrastructure and services play a crucial role in the sustainable development of urban areas, so need to be properly designed and integrated into the urban environment during an early planning phase. The scenario changes according to the analyzed case, i.e. developed or developing countries.
This Special Issue is related, but not limited, to methodologies, applications, and best practices aimed at integrating transportation systems design and management within a sustainable urban planning framework. This could include planning and operating traditional transport modes in a sustainable perspective (e.g., with the implementation of energy-saving strategies in railway systems) and by promoting new forms of transport, namely shared mobility, electric vehicles, cooperative driving, PT-Maas etc. Technical tools required for this purpose include simulation techniques, optimisation procedures, artificial neural netowrks (ANNs), data-driven approaches etc.
Original works in this context, as well as review papers, are strongly encouraged.

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 collection 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 semimonthly 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 1900 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.
