This collection of 444 papers focuses on ways meet the needs of urban transportation systems in a capacity that is environmentally sound, socially equitable, and economically viable. In the last two decades, many large cities in China have experienced rapid urban sprawl, which has been resulted in extensive expansion and motorization of the cities. The threat of increasingly unsustainable urban transportation systems has become a focus of attention as the awareness of the unhealthy interaction between a surging demand for transportation services and the environmental impact of such increases.
