The following study addresses the subject of sustainable public transport. The essence of this concept was explained and its role in transport policy was determined. The role of public authorities in organizing public transport as well as tools to reduce the negative impact of public transport on the environment, with particular emphasis on the competences of local authorities in this area are indicated. In the empirical part, the use of alternative fuels in public transport was analyzed, as well as the most important advantages and disadvantages of individual solutions.
