Annotation:

The research object is urban transportation. The aim of the research is to establish the role of socio-technical factors in enhancing sustainability of urban mobility system; associations scheme is used to derive which transport strategies can minimise socio-economic costs and environmental footprint of urban transportation system. This is the first, systematic transport multivariate-analysis using recent, directly observable open source data from different urban areas around the world. An integrated and supportive socio-technical scheme was created based on the worldwide analysis and systematic literature review. The results of present thesis and developed supportive socio-technical scheme for urban mobility can be used by local governments, urban transportation planners and policy makers to shape future urban strategies.
