In many countries of the world, many cities are experiencing rapid development and transformation imposed by sustainable transport policies, which aim to reduce pollution caused by means of transport and also in a process of adaptation to climate change in this strategic sector.
The sharing of the road, the appearance of cycle paths, and large pedestrian areas constitute the rapid transformation that cities around the world are observing as part of their commitment to reduce CO2 emissions and fight global warming. Thus, personal transport equipment in their different forms requires cities to adapt infrastructure and regulatory texts to ensure the safety of road users (pedestrians, motorists, cyclists, etc.).
This Special Issue aims to analyze the mobility of pedestrians and bicycles in the future cities of the world and to highlight the best actions for the adaptation of urban infrastructures and the change of the behavior of populations.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
-Adaptation of transport and green mobility infrastructures.
-Temporary cycle paths.
-The relationship between urban planning and green mobility.
-Pedestrian and bicycle mobility.
-The contribution of green mobility to reducing pollution.
-The danger and requirements of personal transport equipment.
-Road safety and the adaptation of infrastructure.
-People's health and its relationship with pedestrian mobility and cycling.
-Experiences of cities around the world in the development of green mobility infrastructures.
