The operation of industrial, construction and agricultural enterprises as well as work efficiency and public opinion largely depends on reliability and effective performance of transport and telecommunication. The qualified specialists of Lithuanian universities educated in transport engineering and telecommunication engineering are highly appraised in the European Union countries and others countries. The present paper deals with the higher education system of Lithuania, also describes a system of joint admission to Lithuanian higher schools, which is being already used for several years in this country. The problems of selecting applicants to the Lithuanian universities and the level of knowledge of the applicants admitted to study the programmes in transport engineering and telecommunication engineering, and other study programmes are also discussed in the present paper.
Keywords: Lithuanian higher schools, universities, higher education, applicants, joint admission, transport engineering, telecommunication engineering, study programmes, popularity, competitiveness index, motivation index

The article deals with modern problems of functioning of air transportation market. Macroeconomic regulation is considered as the factor having an essential influence on the state of air transportation market and the level of profitableness of modern airlines. Priority directions of macroeconomic regulation from the positions of providing of the functioning of effective air transportation market are determined. Possible state participation forms in airlines activity are analysed. Within the limits of the article special attention is paid to the problems of state risk-management in the sphere of air transportation. Main macroeconomic risks, which are necessary to be considered in the limits of modern airlines risk- management, are determined. ?Human factor? importance in providing of the functioning of effective air transportation market including the provision of aircraft activity safety is underlined. The personnel motivation problems under "force-majeure" circumstances are considered and the necessity of state and private investors' participation in the formation of social guarantees to modern airline personnel is determined.
Keywords: air transportation market, risk, risk-management, state regulation, profitableness, safety, personnel guarantee, motivation

This paper deals with information systems support of the process, which is to provide medical services to patients without reference of their residence and the location of medical service centre. In conditions of increasing mobility it is necessary to find the ways of quality and efficiency improvement while providing medical services. Special attention is paid to questions, which show the index of information and services access in Latvian medical cluster. Choice of criteria and indices of telemedical project financial-economic evaluation, are being considered.

The MLAT errors have their origin at TDOA measurement errors, as primary input information. These errors can be distinguished by many different criteria. The basic criterion is mechanism of error origin, for example. Under this criterion the errors can be split into the main categories - temperature dependence and aging of the HW component. In this article the analysis of errors of target localization using multilateration system have been made.
Keywords: multilateration, accuracy, errors

The most important things during transport infrastructure changing are the estimation and forecast of the traffic flow distribution over the transport network of the city. This article describes the example of using macroscopic simulation for decision-making during transport infrastructure changing. There exist plans in Liepaja city connected with the transport infrastructure changing. These changes include the new bridge construction over railroad, alternate streets creation, etc. The changes involve big investments, but the confirmation of effectiveness and practicability of such changes should be given. New transport infrastructure elements should cause big redistribution of the traffic flow on transport network of the city that?s why for investigating the effectiveness and practicability modelling on macro level with the help of PTV VISION VISUM software application is used in the given paper.

The main topic of this article is the further development of the coach terminal as a passenger infrastructure object towards the formation of a passenger logistics hub. The coach terminal is an important passenger exchange point with the potential to be a connecting point with other means of transport - this should be taken into account when designing the further development of coach terminals in Riga. The operation of the coach terminal, the minimum services provided and the financing of the inland passenger transportation in the coach terminal are regulated by normative acts and will significantly affect the development of the coach terminal in future. In the article the author stresses the essential factors involved in the operations of the coach terminal: planning of transport and infrastructure, information systems and other trends of development using the example of the JSC "Riga International Coach Terminal".
Keywords: Coach Terminal, passenger logistics hub, information system, simulation modelling
