Transport for Inclusive Societies

The International Transport Forum (ITF), together with ECTRI, TRB, the European Commission (EC), and the World Conference on Transport Research Society (WCTRS) organized the Pre-Summit Research Day, which was held in-person in Leipzig, Germany, on 17 May 2022, as an ancillary event to the 2022 ITF Annual Summit. 

Publications included in this collection present research and findings from the event, which brought together top academics, researchers and practitioners to present and discuss topics relevant to the Summit’s theme, “Transport for Inclusive Societies.” It is important that research results are brought into practice, especially considering the pace with which our transport system is currently evolving. The Research Day provided a great opportunity to exchange ideas not only between researchers, but also with representatives from governments, cities, and other decision makers.
