Abstract: The ever-growing population and dynamic of urban traffic in the city of Sofia, as well as the utterly unsatisfactory condition of public transport have resulted in traffic jams on the capital's main streets and boulevards, exceeded limits of atmospheric and noise pollution, and multiple other negative social effects. The capital's residents prefer to use their personal cars and believe that public transport requires significant improvements - a notion that has been confirmed by a survey of citizens' opinions on the state and quality of urban passenger transport in the capital. All of this has led to a firm conviction in the necessity for adopting specific measures to improve the quality of urban passenger transport, along with determining the topicality of the current paper. The purpose of the article is to name specific measures for improving the social effectiveness of Sofia's public transport, based on an analysis of its dynamic and state.
Keywords: Increasing the social effectiveness, Quality of public transport
