The paper summarizes important economical and environmental implications and some advantages and disadvantages of relocating the Tursib headquarters out of the city. Tursib SA is the urban transport company in Sibiu. Sibiu has had an economic, social and touristic continuous development. Urban transport is one of the main factors in developing activities that are dedicated to integration in the European Community. There are being considered data about a new infrastructure, reducing chemical and noise pollution, traffic decongestion and the possibility to use the highway to reach the end of lines. The entire problem can be integrated into the concept of sustainable transport system. One of the main factors defining sustainable cities is their modern public transportation.
