The UTSG Electronic Mailing List

An Email based mailing list has been established by the Universities Transport Study Group (UTSG). The list provides an electronic discussion forum and information resource for researchers in the field of transport primarily, but not exclusively, in the academic community.

The list was established in October 1993, and has a steadily growing membership, including researchers in all continents of the World.

The aim of the list is to facilitate information sharing, (e.g. news of new research, conferences, seminars and workshops) and to promote links, collaborative working, joint problem-solving and mutual support. Depending on the level of usage of the list and on demand, sub-lists may be set up in the future for special interests or particular types of information.

The list is administered by the Institute for Transport Studies, University of Leeds. It is one of several hundred lists managed by the JISCmail facility funded by the Higher and Further Education Councils of the UK.

Dear UTSG members,

I would like to invite you to participate in a UK-focused online survey for my postgraduate research at the Institute for Transport Studies, University of Leeds, supervised by Prof. Karen Lucas and Dr John Nellthorp.

The survey explores the accessibility and equity impacts of highly/fully automated vehicles and necessary policy responses. It seeks the viewpoints of UK-based transport policy officials, and other experts (transport planners, researchers) with work interest in various aspects of AVs and/or the future of mobility and inequalities.
