This International Conference on Urban Transport and the Environment has successfully been reconvened annually for the last eleven years. It has always attracted a wide international spread of delegates.

Transportation in cities with its related environmental and social concerns is a topic of the utmost priority for urban authorities and central government organisations around the world. Urban Transport systems require considerable studies to safeguard their operational use, maintenance and safety.

The continuing requirement for better urban transport systems in general and the need for a healthier environment has led to an increased level of research around the world. This is reflected in the proceedings of this well-established meeting which demonstrates the steady growth and research into urban transport systems. The variety of topics covered by the conference are of primary importance for analysing the complex interaction of the urban transport environment and for establishing action strategies for transport and traffic problems.

This Urban Transport conference is now well established as the premier annual event of its type since the first conference was held in Southampton in 1995. That original Meeting was followed by conferences in Barcelona (1996); Acquasparta, Italy (1997); Lisbon (1998); Rhodes (1999); Cambridge, UK (2000); Lemnos, Greece (2001); Seville (2002); Crete (2003); and Dresden (2004).
