Modern society is facing the challenge of sustainable mobility. Accessibility and sustainable mobility are central to smart and healthy city development, which not only requires clean travel modes but also involves equitable, healthful, and highly accessible resources and facilities. In recent years, the application and development of new geospatial datasets and methods have provided new possibilities for studying urban mobility and accessibility to support sustainable mobility planning. Our main area of interest is the development and application of geospatial technologies and methods in addressing key issues related to the sustainable mobility and accessibility of urban spaces.
This Special Issue calls for theoretical, methodological, policy, and empirical contributions on the topic of geospatial data and methods for sustainable accessibility and urban mobility. Relevant themes include but are not limited to: geospatial data analysis in transport geography; urban mobility and urban sustainability; and the development and application of new methods, approaches, and analytical frameworks for improving urban sustainability and urban infrastructure accessibility.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Sustainable mobility;
- Analyzing travel behavior using geospatial data;
- Geospatial data analytics in mobility research;
- Development and adoption of active travel modes;
- Environmental impacts of motorized travel;
- Urban infrastructure accessibility;
- Transportation equalities;
- Intelligent transport systems;
- Human mobility;
- Transport geography;
- Transport planning and policy;
- The recent COVID pandemic and spatial inequalities in mobility and accessibility.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue 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.
