Large-scale disruptions to everyday life due to the pandemic have had a substantial impact on transportation systems and supply chains worldwide. The changes in travel behavior will persist as the world resumes pre-pandemic operations. In tandem, digital and physical technologies that have a direct impact on transportation systems have continued to grow. The 6 th NYUAD Transportation Symposium will provide a forum for learning about recent developments in transport economics, travel behavior,, and transport technologies, with the aim of addressing the challenges resulting from major disruptions, as well as the emergence of new technologies and data sources.
