Japan has progressed into an automobile society rapidly since 1960. This has greatly improved the convenience of mobility and expanded the urban area at a fast pace. However, this has also brought about several problems such as chronic traffic congestion, air pollution, and increase in traffic accidents. In addition, taking a look at our lives, life styles are changing along with “population declining” or “reducing birth rate and aging population”, resulting in diversified issues surrounding the living environment. Under such circumstances, currently many efforts to redesign transport systems and regenerate urban infrastructure have been made all over Japan.

Therefore, this special issue focuses on “Urban development advancing with the integration of transport systems”, which has growing importance in both reducing environmental impact, and coping with declining birth rate and population aging. Through introduction of the “Best practices of urban development advancing together with the integration of transport systems”, and “Cases of introducing and utilizing environmental friendly transport systems”, it is our intention to provide an opportunity to think about “what should civil engineers do” in order to create a comfortable living environment.
