China Urban Transport Database (CUTD)

This Research Brief presents research achievements and experience gained in constructing the China Urban Transport Database (CUTD), which has been developed according to the principles of operability, sustainability, scalability, and accessibility.

The major objectives of CUTD are to provide data and a scientific basis for policies and planning decisions as well as a firm basis for scientific research in urban transport. This brief is both published in English and in Chinese.

Dr. Cheng LI and Dr. Xianglong LIU, the authors of this brief, are Associate Professors at CUSTReC and the principal researchers for the CUTD project.

The China Urban Sustainable Transport Research Center (CUSTReC), originally a VREF supported Center of Excellence, is the official think tank for China’s Ministry of Transportation (MOT). This center aims to explore integrated solutions to realizing the sustainable development of urban transport and played a key role in promoting the China Transit Metropolis project and in developing the information required for the China Urban Transport Database (CUTD).

Global Mobility Research

This Meeting of the Minds' blog monthly releases interviews of global transportation researchers from the VREF's Future Urban Transport Program Network.

How Global Policy Does (and does not) Account for Walking and Cycling

This CityFix series, produced by the WRI (World Ressources Institute) Ross Center for Sustainable Cities and supported by the VREF, discusses walking and cycling in cities with a special focus on low- and middle-income countries.

The VREF invites PhD students and early stage researchers to apply for a Study Visit Grant to be supported with up to SEK 30 000.

The invitation is open until 181031.

Each year the Håkan Frisinger Foundation for Transportation Research awards a scholarship to a prominent researcher.
