Featured Collection: TRA2020 - Rethinking Transport

The Transport Research Arena (TRA) is the foremost European transport event that covers all transport modes and all aspects of mobility. Occurring biennially, it attracts 3,000 attendees from all over Europe and beyond. TRA2020 was planned to take place in Helsinki on 27–30 April on the theme “Rethinking transport – towards clean and inclusive mobility”. For the first time a Journal review track was organised, and the best research papers published in a special issue in ETRR. Despite the Conference being cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are pleased to announce that the valuable scientific work from the Conference is still available in this special issue.

Featured Collection: Human Factors of Digitalized Mobility Forms and Services

Digitalization offers new opportunities to support the development of sustainable forms of mobility, however many cities still observe growing traffic and transport-related emissions, and consumption of resources continue to remain at high levels. To reach the full potential of emerging digitalized solutions, there is a strong need to understand demand reactions to new services and whether different groups are able or willing to use these forms of transport. This article collection focuses on the human factors of new mobility forms and services emerging in the context of digitalization, providing insight into behavior reactions, barriers and acceptance issues as a basis for plausible assessments of the impact of new solutions. These findings are intended to support the user-centred design of new services and to enable sustainable behavior shifts.

Aims and scope

European Transport Research Review (ETRR) is a peer-reviewed open access journal publishing original high-quality scholarly research and developments in areas related to transportation science, technologies, policy and practice. Established in 2008 by the European Conference of Transport Research Institutes (ECTRI), the Journal provides researchers and practitioners around the world with an authoritative forum for the dissemination and critical discussion of new ideas and methodologies that originate in, or are of special interest to, the European transport research community. The journal is unique in its field, as it covers all modes of transport and addresses both the engineering and the social science perspective, offering a truly multidisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners, engineers and policymakers. ETRR is aimed at a readership including researchers, practitioners in the design and operation of transportation systems, and policymakers at the international, national, regional and local levels.

ETRR covers the following main areas of interest:

  • Mobility and travel behavior
  • Transportation safety and security
  • Transportation economics
  • Transportation planning and policy
  • Human factors in transportation
  • Traffic and demand management
  • Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)
  • Freight transport and logistics
  • Air and waterway transport
  • Transportation impacts of emerging vehicle technologies
  • Environmental issues in transportation and climate change
  • Equity, social and health issues related to transport

Examples of particular topics of interest are: urban logistics, intermodal transport systems, transitions towards sustainable transport, accessibility and equity analysis, technologies for improving network and vehicle efficiency, advances in integrated transport systems and intermodal transportation, traffic safety analysis, traffic flow theory and modeling, IT technologies for transport data collection and analysis, strategies for vehicle-to-vehicle communications and the transport impacts and indirect impacts of autonomous vehicles. The Journal encourages thematic collections of related articles from major European transport research projects, major conferences such as the TRA, ETC and WCTR, and international networks such as NECTAR.

ETRR aims to disseminate and discuss new ideas and methodologies that originate in, or are of special interest to, the European transport research community. While its focus is on Europe, it will be of interest to anyone wishing to learn from European experience or to develop new applications for European practice. We consider papers on non-European case studies if the relevance for the European transportation research field is sufficiently made clear.
