Abstract

Increased daily mobility between Bratislava and its hinterland and mobility within the city puts demands on the transport system. The massive increase in road transport, connected inter alia with the rapid development of suburbanisation based mainly on individual automobile transport, caused many problems. This paper introduces the selected problems related to the transport in Bratislava and its hinterland from a geographical perspective and outlines the way how to improve the unfavourable situation. The future of transport in Bratislava and its hinterlands requires the creation of a multimodal transport system, which can effectively serve various transport requirements and ensure mobility of inhabitants.

Keywords: transport infrastructure, public transport, individual transport, suburbanisation, Bratislava
