A Special Issue in Transportation Research Part D has been announced entitled “Evaluating initiatives to combat injustice in transportation”. Full papers will be due by 31 March, 2024. Detailed information can be found here:
According to the “Green Paper on Urban Mobility”, a strong inter-modal and inter-sectorial passenger and freight integration could improve the overall efficiency of transport. The operational organization of an integrated passenger/freight system may contribute to this single logistics system. The idea of bridging freight and passenger transport is not new, since first academic discussions date back to more than a decade ago. Nowadays, this scheme is partially adopted for specific transport solutions, such as air, ferry and long-distance rail transport. However, it is less common in urban rail and road transport, as well as in non-urban areas. In these contexts, several technical and policy-related issues make this integration difficult and its application in real cases limited.

The papers that make up this special issue on “Mobility, housing and labour markets in times of economic crises” published in “Regional studies” originate from a NECTAR1 Cluster 4 meeting (devoted to travel, migration, housing and labour market issues) held in Toledo, Spain, in October 2016. These empirically based contributions cover various different European studies for different regional contexts. The special issue can be found here: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/00343404.2020.1711879
A special issue ”Advances in Spatial and Transport Network Analysis” in MDPI International Journal of Geo-Information is being edited by Henrikki Tenkanen (UCL), Elsa Arcaute (CASA), Rafael Pereira (Ipea, Brazil) and Marta Gonzalez (UC Berkley). The deadline for papers is 31st December 2020. The call (see here) is dedicated to advances related to accessibility / spatial network analysis that deal with issues such as climate change and sustainability.
Silvio Nocera (Università IUAV di Venezia, Italy) and Maria Attard (University of Malta, Malta) are launching a Call for Papers for the Special Issue: Active Travel and Mobility Management. This is linked to the NECTAR Joint Meeting of Cluster 2: Policy and Environment and Cluster 7: Social and Health Issues, to be held in Venice, Italy, 26-27 March 2020. However, Guests Editors welcome papers not necessarily presented at the Meeting.
We are pleased to invite you for a special session Mobile Phones, Travel and Transportation organized by Cluster 8 (ICT) of NECTAR at the Mobile Tartu international conference, Estonia, 29th of June – 1st of July 2020. Abstract submissions are due on 31 January 2020. The call can be found here.
A Special Issue on long-term (value of time, travel behavior, spatial, planning, governance as well as shipping) implications of automated vehicles has been recently published in Transport Reviews:

This Special Issue published by the Journal of Transport Geography and edited by Emmanouil Tranos and Elizabeth Mack aims to critically assess and demonstrate how new sources of big data and the related methodological developments have influenced transport geography research. Specifically, the special issue demonstrates the value of such data sources by presenting a collection of cutting edge geographical empirical studies, which take advantage of the ‘three Vs’ that characterize these data (variety, volume, and velocity). In these pieces, a variety of data sources are utilized, which range from train timetables and flows to bike sharing data, to Tweets and to data about individual mobility trajectories from wearable global positioning system (GPS) devices. Transport geography has always been a cross-disciplinary community, but it seems that the availability of new sources of big data has drastically enhanced this characteristic of the field.

This special issue is the output of an international workshop, which was co-organized by the Institute of Prospective Technological Studies at the Joint Research Centre (JRC) and NECTAR Cluster 8 in March 2016 in Seville, Spain. The success of the event, in terms of the large number of participants (around 40 presentations), and also the cross-disciplinary nature of the participants, which included engineers, transportation geographers, urban planners, physicists and cultures geographers initiated this special issue.
The ETRR special issue on “the role of planning towards sustainable urban mobility”, based on the Joint Cluster 2 and Cluster 3 Meeting (17-18 May 2016, Brno, Czech Republic) has been published and can be found here: http://blogs.springeropen.com/springeropen/2018/09/06/role-planning-towards-sustainable-urban-mobility/
