Languages of publication
The article presents problems related to organisation of goods and passenger transport in cities and the methods of solving the problems. Transportation problems in city agglomerations result from dynamic development of economy and the very cities, which is translated into increased demand for transportation services. Owing to infrastructural limitations, specifically in city centres, congestion is a frequent phenomenon. The situation is critical and requires application of unconventional and innovative solutions for transport organisation and management. The article discusses the application of modern logistic solutions based on integration of many elements of the transportation process, including the use of telemetry, IT and planning tools as well as efficient management of goods, passengers and services flow in the cities.
