Abstract

Rapid rise in car ownership in cities of Lithuania, particularly in capital Vilnius, has multiplied continuous traffic jams in the streets of the city and thus increased necessity of development of effective urban solutions designated for optimising transportation in urban areas and reducing negative transport effects. In order to lay down foundation for building a successful remedy Vilnius city municipality administration is planning to submit an application to receiving financial support for the implementation of the Park-and-Ride (hereinafter P&R) scheme for Vilnius within the framework of the European Union (hereinafter EU) Structural Assistance for the period 2014-2020. Multiple criteria decision-making methodology for selecting beneficial sites of P&R lots and for outlining desirable directions of development of the city of Vilnius with incorporated P&R facilities was employed in the paper. The methodology uses a set of descriptive criteria for planning the P&R scheme; expert evaluation was used for estimation of weights of significance of the chosen criteria.
