The conference is organised by the World Conference on Transport Research Society

The objective of the WCTRS is to provide a forum for the interchange of ideas among transportation researchers, managers, policy makers, and educators from all over the world, from a perspective which is multi-modal, multi-disciplinary, and multi-sectoral. The Society has become a primary forum for such international exchanges in transportation; the World Conferences are the place where leading transportation professionals from all countries and areas convene to learn from one another.
