Travel demand management (TDM) tools and techniques have progressed over the last few decades to include new policies, technologies, vehicle and fuel types. Other soft measures have also been introduced such as raising awareness and education policies. The aim of TDM is to improve the efficiency of the transportation system and promote further use of more efficient and smarter modes of transportation in the sense to achieve a sustainable transport system. The Public transportation system and ITS are at the heart of that aim. The 9th International (TDM) symposium will be organised by Edinburgh Napier University, and will take place [...]

Project description
Autonomous vehicles are emerging as a solution to human driver limitations. They also provide opportunities for more efficient use of the road space reducing congestion. This however, comes with new and different challenges to road design and management, travel demand forecast and safety. As car manufacturers are focusing on making future cars for existing roads, little work has been done on [...]

Dear Colleagues,

Call for contributions: proposed Journal of Transport Geography Special Issue “Geographies of bike-sharing and emerging forms of shared micro-mobility”

While bike-share schemes and emerging micro-mobility options may make claims to be socially inclusive by supporting modal shift and providing alternatives for those marginalised by private car based mobility, the reality is often different. Any aspiration for inclusive bike-sharing and shared micro-mobilities is fundamentally related to the use of space and, this being the case, these shared mobility services need to be considered in terms of how they manifest or undermine established power relations.

Electric drive (e-drive) vehicles (plug-in electric and hydrogen fuel cell electric) are being supported by governments around the world to promote the transition towards a sustainable transportation future. However, the adoption of e-drive vehicles is conditional on the availability of an extensive and reliable network of refuelling/recharging infrastructure and policies to support its deployment. This infrastructure not only supports e-drive vehicle ownership and operation, but also enables integration opportunities between vehicles and the energy [...]
