Existing infrastructure in Russia allows to achieve high results in modernization of transport system with the help of intermodal integration of existing public transport types, but it’s potential is not used at the moment. Due to limited financial resources available to the city, region, and investors, decisions on development program should be based on the assessment of effectiveness of the proposed measures and their comparison with projects carried out in other cities and countries. This master's thesis conduct the evaluation of economic effects achieved as a result of implementation of intermodal integration project for existing and prospective public transport systems in Samara. The following results were obtained during the study: • Current situation of the transport sector in Samara (including public transport) was analyzed; • A set of measures was developed in order to implement intermodal integration of public transport systems in Samara (including the development of proposals for the creation of new high-speed public transport lines); • Life cycle project implementation effect was evaluated using “Benefits-costs” approach; • Effects of the developed project was analysed in comparison with leading Russian and Global practice. The set of measures proposed for implementation can be used by the Municipal and State authorities of Samara and Samara region (and could be adopted by other cities and regions) as a guide to develop city transport policy that meets modern challenges, and allows the city to be competitive. "Benefits-costs" analysis can be used to justify the economics of taken measures.
