Geographers, urban planners, and interdisciplinary scholars have made numerous contributions toward understanding urban transportation. Until recently, philosophers have largely neglected the topic, but now transportation is an expanding area of research, most notably in the emerging subfield known as philosophy of the city. This special issue aims to increase philosophical contributions to its study. While we want submissions that are philosophically enlightening, we also encourage papers that are accessible to audiences outside of philosophy. Submissions grounded in all philosophical theories and traditions are welcome.
Although we welcome any submission that fits the description above, some suitable topics include:
Transportation as a Human Right
