9th International Symposium on Travel Demand Management (TDM 2019 Edinburgh)

The 9th TDM symposium, organised and hosted by the Transport Research Institute, was held at the Edinburgh Grosvenor Hotel from 19th to 21st June.  The symposium was a great success with speakers from across the world. It was well attended, with lots of interesting talks that generated very interesting discussions.  A number of contributions on shared mobilities, concepts and notions of TDM were discussed at the symposium. Contributions on the understanding of users’ perception, customer satisfactions, shared mobilities and reflections of interaction and integration of existing and emerging transportation systems were also debated. Contributions on big data analytics and how they affect travel demand management in “smart” cities, analytical approaches, policy and case studies for travel demand management, with special focus on urban settings were presented. Other contributions and presentations on autonomous vehicles were also deliberated.

A special thanks to our keynote speakers:  Dr Chandra Bhat, Professor Juan De Dios Ortúzar and Professor Glenn Lyons.
