Rapid changes in technology and changing patterns in travel behavior are having significant impacts on urban transportation mobility. Because the ease of movement within and between urban places is a critical element of social, economic, and environmental vitality, the evolution of complex systems for moving people, goods, and information is the focus of considerable global attention. We expect that the modal options in the future will be different from those we experience today, but in what ways? How will cities implement “Intelligent”, “smart”, and “sustainable” practices as they plan for and analyze the mobility needs of their populations? Additionally, how will these practices shape or reshape urban landscapes? History has shown that each era of transportation innovation has also coincided with cultural shifts. What do we expect these impacts to look like in urban areas around the world? This Special Issue will highlight current research on these topics, as well as speculate about anticipated changes that may transform urban life.
