Important topics in transport planning are similar throughout Europe. Transport planners focus on accessibility, congestion, air quality, safety, noise, liveability, etc. Although the main emphasis and the local circumstances vary, the underlying structures and solutions tried are fairly common. Transport planning policy has been a track session in most of the AESOP conferences so far, stressing the importance of the topic in planning in general.
Transportation Planning and Policy is a network and a forum to share research interests and to collaborate through:
- annual meetings at AESOP conferences and research-led workshops
- support to new researchers, in particular PhD students
- the publication and dissemination of research findings
- the facilitation of new research projects
