The increased well-being of urban populations in Russia and growth in urban economies generates sustainable and increasing demand for urban transport services. At the same time, however, growth in the transport sector, primarily in terms in car ownership, has been accompanied by growth in the negative impacts of urban transport which has led to a significant loss of quality of life for the population and rising economic losses as a result of the overall decline in efficiency of the urban transport system.
