This article presents the concept of transportation demand management (TDM) in the EU transport policy context. Authors present the source of transport intensity problems and also show good practices that effectively reduce the transport demand. To identify the major transportation demand problems that cities are faced with, primary and secondary research was carried out. Primary research shows the social awareness of mobility management. Secondary research consists of a thorough review of the existing literature on transport problems faced by cities. From this view, it is clear that transport in relation to the length of the roads in Poland is one of the highest in Europe. This paper also indicates that the current urban policies are often the main causes of suburbanization.
