The possibilities of expanding the transport infrastructure in cities are considerably limited, as urban areas of the municipalities are built-up. The current infrastructure is no longer sufficient to meet standard transport needs in cities, as there has been a growing trend in recent years for both manufactured and sold vehicles. The reason that vehicles are manufactured is the high demand for the purchase of these vehicles, which clearly reflects the subsequent trend of the traveling public using individual transport modes. In individual chapters, this article evaluates the simultaneous use of intelligent transport systems in the Slovak cities and, at the same time, points out further possibilities of SMART elements implementation in transport, which can ensure more efficient transport processes in agglomerations. Given the circumstances that transport infrastructure is no longer sufficient and the vehicles are stationary, which has adverse effects on arrival time as well as on the environment and the quality of life in the cities, the manuscript deals with this issue in particular.
