At the nexus of energy, infrastructure, and waste management, the decarbonization of the Chinese transport sector, whose volumes in freight and passengers are still continuously increasing, is essential to achieve its 2030 CO2 emission peaking and 2060 carbon neutrality targets as well as the Sustainable Development Goals. Interrelated policy trends of complementing sustainable urbanisation with rural revitalisation, leveraging new technologies and incentivising green modes of transportation all add to a complex mobility landscape. Meanwhile, various challenges persist: The sourcing of clean energy for China’s electrification scheme remains critical to reducing carbon and material footprints. Continuously high levels of congestion and road safety concerns necessitate a (re)construction of integrated traffic systems as well as relevant regulatory measures. Inclusive mobility planning must capitalize accessibility to ensure not only a sustainable, but equally just transition which leaves no one behind.
