Abstract

The transportation system is a complex, alive and dynamic mechanism. Taking into account all of the problems of a public transport the difficulty is to make a virtual network that can be improved and organized from the point of view of a systemic approach. Now, public transport is a critical point in urban development and should be treated as one of most important areas in a city. Public transport in the city is considered to be of great importance, in terms of social development and quality of life. In terms of city development, an important aspect is to create a public passenger transportation system that is safe, affordable, economical, reliable and environmentally friendly. The role of the public transport in economy and all aspects of the city development, from the point of view of the citizens, dictates the need to introduce measures in the system that are harmonious, balanced and effective and that can make the difference from development to stagnation.
