Innovative transport solutions that prioritise people’s needs are pivotal for creating vibrant, safe, and thriving cities. By focusing on safety, accessibility, sustainability, and efficiency, these solutions aim to enhance urban livability. We analyse the integration of multimodal transportation systems with smart technologies to optimise traffic flow, reducing congestion, and improving safety for pedestrians and cyclists. By placing whānau at the centre, these innovative transport solutions contribute to the creation of inclusive urban environments where mobility is convenient, equitable, and environmentally sustainable.

In particular, we focus on:

  • Road and traffic safety (vision Zero)
  • Pedestrian accessibility 
  • Crash Reduction and Prevention (analysis methods and models)  
  • Health, access and transport as an enabler of wellbeing  
  • Equity in mobility, gender 
  • Te Ao Māori and indigenous perspectives on transport  
  • Transport effects (+ve / -ve)  
  • Modal shifts and ravel behavioral studies
