Abstract

Managing urban areas has become one of the most important development challenges of the 21st century. Urban populations continue to grow and sustainable urbanization is key to successful development. Growing cities facilitate more attractive opportunities for employment, education, and cultural, shopping, social and sport activities. Many cities are adopting a Smart City agenda to improve quality of life by using urban information technology to improve the efficiency of services. Passenger and freight transport is essential for the development of cities and the supply of their residents and businesses.
