The object of this research was the planning and organisation of a sustainable urban transport system in the “Upper Town” of Thessaloniki. In this article the main findings of a household travel survey held before and after the operation of a new bus line in the area will be discussed. Then what will be presented are the specific measures and interventions aiming at the safeguard, maintenance and enhancement of the special characteristics of this residential area, adopting a “green” mobility approach The Upper Town is a historic district situated in the north-east part of the intra muros city with traditional architecture and organic urban tissue. Steep slopes, a complex network of narrow paved streets, dead-ends, small glades and picturesque squares compose the road system. These characteristics cause unfavorable travel conditions for pedestrians, bicycles and vehicles. The findings of the research show that the improvement of infrastructure for pedestrians, the development of a dense public transport network connecting the district with the city centre, the improvement of the urban landscape and the preservation and enhancement of its spatial features are the main priorities. The operation of the new bus line has to meet the expectations of the residents and serve the mobility needs of the area. The participation of the citizens constitutes an important tool for the development, acceptance and implementation of an integrated and sustainable public transport system.
