Abstract

This paper presents implementation of transportation policy in cities of agglomeration in the field of public transportation. The activities in this area should be regarded as one of the principal tools in public policies of cities included in urban agglomeration, which particular focus on its central municipality or municipalities. The starting point for this type of activities that include e.g. modernizations and investments in the transport system of the city, application of “clear” traction and propagation of solutions that minimize environmental conflicts, elimination of exclusion (also exclusion of the disabled) and optimization of the transportation offer is the evaluation of the level of adjustment of communication lines to identified needs of the inhabitants. With regard to this context, the paper discusses the method of evaluation developed for the purposes of the city of Rybnik, Poland, which is a central municipality of the Rybnik agglomeration and western sub-region of the Silesian Voivodeship.
