Abstract

The article addresses selected practical aspects of criteria selection for purposes of actions undertaken in the field of sustainable financing of transport infrastructure. The latter notion should be understood as such financing of individual infrastructure elements which conforms with principles of sustainable development of transport and partially encompasses the existing travelling patterns. The methodology proposed may be applied wherever it is possible to flexibly distribute the available means for the sake of building new infrastructure elements or repairing and upgrading the existing ones. The article describes the available features of GT Planner, being a specialised travel planner as well as principles of using these features for establishing legitimate criteria for financing of transport infrastructure. Such criteria may be defined on various grounds, for instance based on observations of behaviour patterns and travelling preferences of inhabitants of an area where investments are planned in the sphere of transport infrastructure.
