Abstract: Intelligent growth identified as the principles of development and planning operations has established the ground usage pattern and effective transportation. This method contains numerous strategies which their result is better accessibility, more effective patterns of land usage and multiple transportation systems. Intelligent growth is a proposed method for improving dispersal. This growth has been supported by various groups. In this study, districts 1, 3 and 4 in Kerman, Iran have been studied on the strategies of transportation intelligent growth. The objective of this study is to review the quality of urban transportation in Kerman districts. The method is research project and descriptive-analytical. Initially, the criteria (indices) to be studied were selected then several sub-criteria were identified for each one. After different calculations, the best district was identified among the three studied areas, considering the studied criteria using AHP method and GIS. The results of the research show that there is a meaningful difference among the districts of Kerman considering intelligent growth criteria. Among the studied districts, District 1 gained maximum score of criteria and the districts 3 and 4 were in the second and third place.
