Advanced Transport Systems: Contribution to Sustainability
An important current and prospective medium- to long-term objective of transport systems worldwide is to continuously improve sustainability. On the one hand, this implies handling growing passenger and freight transport demand efficiently, effectively, and safely, and on the other mitigating their direct and indirect impacts on the environment and society such as energy consumption and related emissions of Greenhouse Gases (GHG), local noise, congestion, traffic incidents/accidents, land use/take, and waste on the other.
