Traffic flows associated with the movement of passengers and goods, characterized by traffic intensity, speed, direction and other factors are closely interrelated. The planned traffic intensity of these flows is de-termined by calculating the carrying capacity of the elements of the transport system or links in the delivery chains. The article provides a comprehensive analysis of the throughput capacity of a railway line, rail-way station, railway stations and landside areas, airports, and highways. Calculated dependencies, used to determine the carrying capacity of transport infrastructure facilities, have been carry out. It is shown that the throughput (capacity) of infrastructure facilities is focused, most of all, on the volume of cargo transportation in various industries. The factors that must be take into account when determining the conditions for further de-velopment and increasing the capacity of transport infrastructure elements are noted. All calculation methods are reduced to determining the maxi-mum permissible volume of cargo transportation (in passenger traffic, - passengers) that can be passed (processed) by an infrastructure object per unit (for a certain period) of time in the considered road transport and weather and climatic conditions.
