Abstract: 

The complexity of transport issues in cities has nowadays perplexed experts and planners. A variety of policies and decisions adopted by municipal executives to solve the problem has just provided temporary solutions, the efficacy of which has been excoriated by critics, as well as many citizens. Managers and planners have come to the conclusion that most investments, especially those allocated to the transportation management subsystems, although resulting in improvements in the short-run, cannot culminate in a sustainable situation.
