In recent years various solutions, strategies and modes of transport have entered the scene in urban transport of both people and goods. These new agents are, for example, different types of shared mobility, new forms of management of non-motorized transport, the emerging technologies for inter-vehicular communication, fleets of autonomous vehicles, the growing electrified motorization, etc.

The implementation of these innovations necessarily involves the development of new modeling and simulation tools and methodologies, both for the evaluation of their effects on conventional transport systems, and for the choice of appropriate parameters that allow their technical and economic viability, without forgetting the necessary models for prediction and estimation of travel demand.

The purpose of the edition of this special issue would therefore be to compile a set of high-quality original contributions that would provide i) significant methods, models and case studies to address / illustrate the effects of the inclusion of these innovations in urban transport, both at a strategic, tactical or operational level, ii) specific models of said agents / subsystems and their demand and, finally iii) new modeling methods or enhancements in existing modeling methodologies that could be potentially used or adapted for evaluating the previous aspects.
