Abstract

Solving transport problems in the cities assumes the implementation of regulatory measures and a complex of technological, operational and economic measures. The improvement of transport conditions in urban areas is a precondition for their sustainable development. Regulative harmonization and regional infrastructure development is a necessary precondition in the integration process and in adopting the best practices in the organization of local (urban) transport. This paper deals with the problems of modelling urban public transport with regard to the principle of the sustainability of transport development, which integrates the objectives of mobility, physical planning and environmental protection in transport policy. The models for the improvement of urban transport in the projects realized are analogously applicable at a regional level. This fact is of great importance for the regulatory harmonization, strategic planning and policy development of urban transport management in Croatia.
