The PhD thesis (hereinafter – the thesis) deals with urban mobility systems in line to the principles of sustainable development. The object of the conducted research is to determine the impact of the applied urban mobility infrastructure and mobility measures on the general mobility system in the different types of cities. The aim of the thesis is to propose a methodology for assessing urban mobility system development considering the principles of sustainable development, which helps properly select the most effective urban mobility infrastructure and mobility measures in view of the city type and urban characteristics.

The main tasks solved in the paper embrace assessing quantitative and qualitative parameters for the urban sustainable mobility system employing the developed set of urban mobility infrastructure and mobility measures.

The thesis consists of the introduction, three chapters, general conclusions, the lists of references and author's publications related to the topic of the thesis and 8 appendices.

The introduction briefly discusses the research problem, emphasizes the relevance of the paper, describes the object of research, forms the aim and objectives of the thesis, defines the scientific novelty of the paper and presents the statements to be defended.

Chapter 1 reviews European and national goals in the transport sector, provides the challenges and opportunities of urban mobility systems and examines the processes of sustainable mobility system development.
