The paper explores the issues of urban public transport development as the principal element of infrastructure of modern city, its essential social institution. The authors emphasize the importance of providing high-quality transport services in conditions of scattered public transport, technological obsolescence of vehicles, poor organisational procedures, absence of logistic integration and coordination of various means of urban transport. The paper reveals the problems in modernisation of urban passenger transport. The authors examine efficient systems of urban public transport management in different cities worldwide and classify scenarios of interaction between local government and operators in transport services market. Having analysed the system of public transport management in a largest city the authors suggest an alternative for development of the urban public transport based on logistic integration and cooperation and principles of multimodality with creation of a centre for urban public transport management to ensure efficient coordination of passenger traffic.
