The development of telematic system for public transport control is based on the analysis of sustainable development principles, taking into account a list of impacts. The control of several transport modes, based on common principles is discussed. The business case of application is analyzed for the city of Riga. The telematic system solution offered in the current research is able to provide a common technological platform for a sustainable development of the transport system, including an embedded solution for the environmental impact assessment. The legal and historical requirements for statistical data, measurements and information flow are concentrated within one platform. A multi agent platform approach allows using this platform for the on-line transport system control, including the transport system dispatching, the changing of signalling plan, the managing of transport flow, preventing of accidents, and fast solutions for registered accidents.
