The Transport Economists’ Group, formed in 1973, provides a forum for people involved in transport economics to meet regularly and discuss matters of mutual interest. Membership is open to economists working in transport and others whose work is connected with transport economics. The aim of the Group is to improve the quality of transport management, planning and decision making by promoting lectures, discussions and publications related to the economics of transport and of the environment within which the industry functions.

Next meeting, Wednesday 28 March 2018 at 17:30 for 18:00
Phil Goodwin and Gordon Stokes will speak on “Young People's Travel, past, present and future”.
Phil and Gordon are two of the authors of a major study published by the Department for Transport, carried out by a team of researchers from the Universities of Oxford and West of England. It focuses on explaining the many causes of their very substantial reduction in car use building up over the last 25 years, signs that this is unlikely to be reversed, and what may follow for the future.
Phil was formerly head of the transport studies unit at Oxford and UCL, a GLC planner, a director of Dover Harbour, a member of SACTRA, and is now Emeritus Professor of Transport Policy at UCL and UWE.
Gordon formerly worked at TRRL, the Countryside Agency and Commission for Rural Communities, Oxford and Reading Universities, and is now Research Associate at TSU Oxford.
Together they have collaborated on many projects over 30 years, including a Ten Year ESRC programme on changing travel behaviour, and co-editing the 2014 Special Issue on Peak Car of the journal Transport Reviews.
