Transportation systems have become more complex and frequently congested, and as a result, a reliable deion of traffic flow is a nontrivial problem. A lot of models have been proposed so far, unfortunately, none of them can be considered as an ideal or, at least, universal one. In general, traffic flow models can be grouped into four main categories depending on the level of detail: macroscopic, mesoscopic, microscopic and submicroscopic. Microscopic simulation has gained recognition as an effective way for quantifying traffic operations. Additionally, microscopic simulation models can address various types of network issues, and in more recent developments they also provide a tool for evaluating Advanced Traffic Management Systems, Travel Demand Management, Intelligent Transportation Systems and Advanced Traveler Information Systems.

Within this paper the microscopic analysis of traffic flow, ecological parameters such as CO and NOx Emissions through the educationally developed microscopic simulation model SFStreetSIModel, version 2.1 has been described and the microscopic simulation software introduced. Since the urban mobility planning has become the most important topic in the European Commission Sustainable urban mobility package, we hope that the results of this research will help in the procedures and actions for the development of sustainable urban mobility plan for the city of Bitola. Namely, the authors are trying to present that the analysis of environmental parameters as pedestrian traffic flow measures of effectiveness is one of the “Q” factors for sustainable urban mobility.
