 Summary:
 Main city stations of public transport represent focus points in a settlement and they are the travelling starting points of tourists and visitors. There are knots of different traffic aspects on those locations. The first impression of a place, especially when it comes to urban structures, is formed exactly in these places of gathering of a large number of people who use the collective intercity, and then the city public transport. The quality of the immediate surroundings affects the first impression of the city and thus contributes to the character of the settlement's image. Surroundings are shaped by many factors of the built and natural environment, such as urban elements and details, architecture, transport and information infrastructure, natural elements and many others. Thoughtful orchestration of all elements increases the accessibility and functionality of space, at the same time creating a harmonious and ambient environment that, for many people, represents the first contact with the city. With its position and hierarchy, in the sense of economy and politics, Novi Sad caused people of different ages and demands to gravitate towards it, where a large number of periodical migrations mostly went through bus and railroad traffic. This very fact requires the necessity of planned design and shaping of the area around these important infrastructure facilities, as well as a thoughtful construction of connections with the rest of the city, especially when it comes to traffic crossroads and junctions of different types of transport. In this paper, urban parameters of traffic, purpose of areas, spaces for socialization, content and ambience of the traffic objects surroundings are analyzed and valorised. The conclusion is that they are well planned, but not functionally organized enough and that they represent potential places for development.
