Transport in the Urban System

Transport in Towns - some factors of the Transport System and their interaction within the whole Urban System.

The panel of three eminent academics will give an appreciation of how transport functions as part of a city’s complex system. It will assist the broad engineering community to guide decision makers by contributing to well-informed local strategic thinking and intellectual interchange.

Panel Members:
Prof. David Levinson joined the School of Civil Engineering at the University of Sydney in 2017 as Foundation Professor in Transport Engineering. He was a Professor at the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Geo- Engineering at the University of Minnesota, from 1999 to 2016. He conducts research on Accessibility, Transport Economics, Transport Network Evolution, and Transport and Land Use Interaction. He is the Founding Editor of Transport Findings and the Journal of Transport and Land Use. He is the author of several books including: The Transportation Experience, Planning for Place and Plexus, Elements of Access, and The End of Traffic and the Future of Access. He blogs at https://transportist.org/

Prof. John D Nelson joined University of Sydney in 2019 as Chair in Public Transport, Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies, moving from the University of Aberdeen where he was Sixth Century Chair in Transport Studies and Director of the Centre for Transport Research and before moving to Aberdeen was Professor of Public Transport Systems in the School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences at Newcastle University. His particularly interest is in the application and evaluation of new technologies to improve transport systems (with a particular focus on public transport and shared transport solutions) as well as the policy frameworks and regulatory regimes necessary to achieve sustainable mobility.

Dr Michelle Zeibots is Research Director Transport, Institute for Sustainable Futures, and Senior Lecturer School of Civil Engineering at the University of Technology. She specialises in the analysis of sustainable urban passenger transport systems drawing together operational, behavioural and governance features relating to multi-modal urban transport networks. She combines knowledge of more sustainable public and active (walking and cycling) transport to examine means of reducing road traffic congestion through her specialisation in induced traffic growth and its implications for sustainable urban development. She has acted as an expert witness and expert referee, carried out empirical analysis and joint-authored reports for several Australian State and New Zealand Government agencies.
