Throughout the history, urban planning experienced several changes and developments with the light of economic, politic, demographic, social and environmental characteristics of existing time period and effects of these features on society. An example of these developments is the emergence of the idea of seeking a comprehensive and multi-faceted solution to the negative situations of cities in the early 1990s in the context of "sustainable planning". The question of how our cities will react in the face of adverse conditions has become a matter of debate. The focus of this debate lies in the fact that cities and the inhabitants of the city struggle with sudden changes and threats. Aim of this study is determination of necessities for integrating urban transportation with urban resilience concept and examination of basic approaches for this integration method. One of the most important subject is identification of policies and scenarios in so that resilient transportation concept works with urban transportation system in harmony and reflection of this harmony to city as a whole. In addition to this, the determination of working principles integrated with different disciplines (social sciences, economic sciences, etc.) and the inclusion of macro and micro scales into urban planning are among the topics to be elaborated. Finally, on the Istanbul city, analysing existing potentials and possibilities in the context of urban transportation and making of policies, scenarios and solution alternatives are discussed on the city of Istanbul.
