Many countries face environmental problems along with traffic jams, over-crowded traffic and poor public transportation system. The paper elaborates a project idea of introducing a new sustainable city transport in the capital of Macedonia, based on light and electricity driven monorail system. Yet, the research does not attempt to provide a detailed map applicable to solve pollution problems of Skopje, but rather to suggest framework for serious consideration for answering profound issues, like the nature of urban air pollution, pollution sources, and available resources. Moreover, the study posts some valuable recommendations for developing monorail as probably the only permanent solution that may improve environmental footprint of Skopje. By following many positive world-wide examples, the paper proposes a scheme in which local and central policy makers may approach in selection and implementation of internationally based experiences. It places a special emphasis on how to coordinate policies across many sectors that are closely linked to the mitigation of air pollution from city urban transport, in the first line environment, transport, and energy. Greater use of public transport offers a single most effective strategy currently available for achieving significant energy savings and environmental gains, without creating new government programs or imposing new rules on the private sector. Consequently, Skopje may have fast, reliable, modern, ecologically friendly and long-term sustainable city transport.
