The purpose of this article is to investigate Kazan inhabitants' reactions to the idea of not utilizing a personal automobile as a mode of mobility in the city. On the basis of the research and assessment, the goal of this study is to provide recommendations to promote the notion of Kazan city residents utilizing public transportation services. The following key tasks were established and solved in order to reach the goal: a theoretical and empirical explanation of the major concepts related to the study's subject; a comparison of the volume of public expenditures incurred by Kazan citizens when driving their own automobile vs using public transportation services was conducted, and the city of Kazan's public transportation system was assessed. A questionnaire survey and content analysis were used as part of the study's methodology. As a result of the research, we discovered that there is now a problem in Kazan, namely, the inability to provide a universal transfer of residents from the use of private automobiles to the use of public transportation services owing to a lack of development of the appropriate infrastructure. The key advice for local governments is to develop a program to update the transportation fund and enhance roadways, in tandem with the gradual implementation of restriction measures for cars.
