One of the most important means of urban public transport, which is an important factor in the functioning of the city, guaranteeing continuity of economic, social, cultural and other systems and development of the city. Public transport is a mode of transport that can create a competition for private cars. Modernization of passenger transport is one of the most important tasks of the transport system to ensure the speed – one of the most important fast and high-quality transport guarantors. The main tasks of urban public transport systems were adopted in Vilnius in the Strategic Plan for 2010–2020: to integrate shuttle taxis, private shuttle busses into a unified communications public transport system and ensure their work on market conditions; to develop and implement fast urban communication network. Install existing modes of high-speed traffic route networks, using existing and forming new public transport lanes, implementing priority lanes of traffic at intersections; to optimize the urban public transport network development and modernization. To perform proofreading of urban public transport’s routes and schedules by passenger traffic studies evaluating newly formed rapid transport network; to install a public transport terminal in the northern part of the city – in Fabijoniškės district – for urban and suburban passenger service by reducing the existing bus station traction. New public transport system was installed in Vilnius since 2013 July 1 combining fast, basic and additional routes. Public transport lanes were equipped which reached 35 km by 1 September 2013.
