What is urban transport?

There are numerous types of transportation available for public and cargo among the territory of a town and the immediate residential district zones. They also perform work relating to designing and providing public services and amenities. Urban transport is a significant sector of municipal services.

While passengers' mobility is the outcome of individual decisions based on different rationales, freight mobility is decided in tandem between the cargo owners and transportation service providers.
