The main aim of this article is to analyse the role and importance of Integrated Territorial Investment (ITI) as the instrument for the management of transport security in the four largest cities of Lower Silesia: Wrocław, Wałbrzych, Legnica and Jelenia Góra. The doubt concerning the potential connected with using ITI is reasonable in the sense that it creates a completely new, previously unknown, mechanism for the implementation of EU cohesion policy. The conducted analysis, covering the level of strategic management, does not allow for a full confirmation of the formulated hypotheses, for two reasons. Firstly, only three out of the four cities in question (Wrocław, Wałbrzych and Jelenia Góra) use ITI in the management of transport security. Secondly, although the use of ITI complements the assumptions of Poland's National Urban Policy (NUP), which highlights the importance of strategic programming and a multimodal approach in the management of transport security, the scale of this usage is the same as in the case of those cities with integrated, detailed transport strategies, as well as cities without such strategies.
