  • The study of the processes of transport system development in major cities brings researchers’ attention to numerous questions, one of which is developing the models of their functional and spatial organization. To solve the problem in question we need to understand the correlation between the labor market situation, consumer markets and spatial location of jobs and people’s movement related to their daily activities.
