World Conference on Transport Research Society


The World Conference on Transport Research Society (WCTRS) provides a forum for the interchange of ideas among transport researchers, managers, policy makers, and educators from all over the world, from a multi-modal, multi-disciplinary, and multi-sectoral perspective.

Every three years, the Society holds the World Conference, where leading transport professionals from all countries and areas convene to learn from one another. The next Conference will be WCTRS Montréal, held Monday 17th-Friday 21st July 2023.

Research Areas

In addition to our Special Interest Groups, which facilitate research activities and the exchange of ideas in 42 topic areas, the WCTRS has a number of Task Forces which conduct research into emerging issues in Transport and aim to bridge gaps between research and policy-making.

WCTRS COVID-19 Task Force

Formed in April 2020, this Task Force aims to investigate the damages and emergent measures and formulate constructive recommendations on ways to deal with the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, to improve the social impacts of the response whilst minimizing damages to the Transport and Logistics sector.
