The public and customers rely on operators to assure them the reliable and safe day-to-day uses of public transports. To improve safety and reliability of transportation and transit systems, many key engineering implementations on board and on site have been innovated. In addition, based on recent facts and evidences, extreme physical and cyber threats become more common and even more dangerous to the public. Such examples are the terrorist attacks in Saint Petersburg in , in London in , in Stockholm in , in Brussels in , in Nice in , and so many more.
These examples have one thing in common.

They all targeted at transportation and transit system, either on rail, bus, car or truck, etc. This research topic will further promote and encourage research, development, policy and innovation in improving safety, managing risks, and mitigating uncertainties in transportation and transit systems where perspectives from the humanities and the operations are also included. Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.
It provides an insight on advanced methods and concepts for the prevention, mitigation, assurance and development towards safer built environments via transportation systems.
