Special session at ICTTP 2020 conference

The next International Conference on Traffic and Transport Psychology (ICTTP) will be held on 25-27 August 2020 in Gothenburg, Sweden. The key focus of this conference is the role that traffic and transport psychology can play in achieving a safe and sustainable transport system.

ICTCT organises a special session entitled…

Vulnerable road users and sustainability: a multidisciplinary approach

Many say that it is necessary to change mode choice in order to achieve improvements concerning sustainable transport systems. To make it real, hundreds of millions of citizens need to change their daily behaviour—a shift from individual car use to more sustainable traffic modes, such as walking or cycling. We need to introduce a coherent set of measures which will influence the behaviour choices in a wished-for way. A multidisciplinary, holistic approach is needed: from the side of social sciences, especially psychology (measures focused on perception, motivation and behaviour, as well as assessments of communication efforts), engineering sciences (infrastructure measures, urban design) and public health sciences (health issues connected with mode choice).

We call for submissions in which practical research results related to vulnerable road users are achieved through successful inter-disciplinary co-operation.
