Recent changes in travel practices, triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic, raise the question of how cities and mobility systems are changing. Moreover, many local governments are accelerating their plans to reduce car traffic. This book comprises expert contributions taking multidisciplinary perspectives on transport in a moving world. It examines the joint transformations of mobility practices, urban planning, transport public policies and rapid technological development, within the context of an increasingly uncertain world.

With state-of-the-art research and knowledge on the impact of digitalization in urban transport, the chapters examine the evolution of mobility practices, accessibility and urban planning and explore the evolution of planning and public policy practices. New paths and directions of urban and regional transport from both the research and policy viewpoints are covered in different scales and different geographical contexts.

Transport in a Moving World grasps the important trends and challenges of soft mobility, tactical urbanism, accessibility planning and transport planning for students, scholars, policymakers and practitioners, and offers a portal to understanding ever-changing mobility practices.
Critical Acclaim
‘An excellent book bringing together the state of knowledge on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mutual relationships between (a) travel behaviour, (b) societally relevant effects like ICT-use (teleworking, e-shopping, …), (equity of) accessibility, congestion, environmental and health impacts, and (c) planning and public policies.’
– Bert van Wee, Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands
