Abstract

Bratislava is a part of several international and regional transport corridors. Its location it ideal for connecting different transport systems, especially rail, road, but also water, and air. As a part of the Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area Bratislava it is one of the city's network nodes of transport corridors. It is therefore necessary to become a full part of the European policy of transport transformation. As a smart city should it makes much more use of multimodal transport options, including equipment, facilities and links that will take effect in urban and architectonic image of the city. Intelligent solutions for cleaner, more efficient and safer transport, however, requires to built a significant amount of infrastructure, but also to ensure the interoperability of the various elements of multimodal transport facilities with cooperating entities, vehicles, information technology and processes. Architectural design of these tasks should also bring a higher level of satisfaction with life of inhabitants in the capital of Slovakia, especially in the transport sector. However, it is necessary that the common interest in improving transport not only looking for joint decisions as well as individuals behavior models.
