Summary. Transport system is the key indicator of sustainable spatial development, because if it is ineffective it can render the economy, the environment, and society vul-nerable. Despite the large number of already existing research, the city transportation sys-tem’s development strategy design is still a relevant objective, because the existing ways and strategies of the transport development may not always be applicable in certain cir-cumstances. This article presents the possible ways of improvement of sustainability of the city transportation systems adapted in accordance with the peculiarities of Russian cit-ies. It is stated that when working out a city transportation system’s development strategy it is necessary to take into account all possible risks. According to the case study of Na-berezhnye Chelny city, all vulnerabilities of the system that today are typical almost for all Russian cities were analyzed, classification of risks was made, and means of their con-trol were suggested. Solutions proposed as a result of the SWOT-analysis can be used when developing transport strategies for other cities with similar specificity.
