Nowadays, the world’s leading cities are focused on the Smart City concept, due to the widespreading of innovations that enhance quality of life. The need for sustainable development for the harmonious prolongation of the humanity existence raises attention to attempts for improving the economic, social and environmental conditions. Among the modes of transport, the most harmonious in the modern city, which strives for sustainable development, is the tramway. The experience of the tramway renaissance during the last decades indicates that it is not only a mode of transport but also a positive impact on the urban space and community. In the context of Ukraine’s integration into the European Community, it is important to analyse the experience of cities that have been successful in implementing urban transport innovations. In the article, we compare the cities of Kyiv and Budapest to find spatial patterns that should be obeyed for the sustainable development of a post-socialist city based on smart solutions.
