It is an unique role for the WCTR to identify emerging issues and opportunities of a policy, managerial, or technical nature which will influence transportation research, policy, management and education in future years. In this way, the Society and the Conference intend to play a strong leadership role in bridging the gaps between research and practice.
The Society is multi-modal, multi-disciplinary, and multi-sectoral. The members interests cover almost all aspects of transportation research, planning, policy and management. In general, the World Conferences do mirror these breadths of interests. WCTRS membership currently represents 64 countries and aims to extend its influence.
