The central idea of this paper is to promote the management of intermodality in urban transportation. The continuous management of intermodality, starting at strategic level with intermodality policy management and then, at all the decision making levels until final users, could become invisible the transshipment from a transport mode to the other. The politicians, infrastructure managers, operators and the final users including the passengers, are both the decision-makers and the target of the intermodality management. The management of intermodality must become a tool for optimal control of the large dynamic system of urban transportation according to a multicriterial objective.
