CTS’s overarching aim is to undertake research which furthers understanding on the interactions between mobility, accessibility, lifestyles and society and influences policy challenges linked to the transport sector. A key objective for this aim is to contribute towards a just transition to a stable climate.

Our work is relevant to all modes of transport including walking, and takes an integrated approach in covering both personal mobility and freight mobility.
