|Description:||18th International Conference on Urban Transport and the Environment "Urban Transport 2012"|
|Location:||A Coruña, Meliá Maria Pita hotel, Spain|
|Subject:||The variety of topics covered by the conference are of primary importance for analysing the complex interactions of the urban transport environment and for establishing action strategies for transport and traffic problems. Transportation in cities, with its related environmental and social concerns, is a topic of the utmost importance for urban authorities and central governments around the world. Urban transport systems require considerable studies to safeguard their operational use, maintenance and safety. They produce significant environmental impacts and can enhance or degrade the quality of life in urban centres. The emphasis is to seek transportation systems that minimize any ecological and environmental impact, are sustainable and help to improve the socioeconomic fabric of the city. Another area of concern addressed by the conference is that of public safety and security, seeking ways to protect passengers while retaining the efficiency of systems.
