Today, information technology, one of the most important strategic tools in the management and administration true human bodies. With the development in addition to the city and retreat of problems with respect to the consequences that the industry modernization and urban life.As well, every bit for the city dwellers living, the city is stable. Of the most important obstacles in the city, poor management of sustainable urban transportation systems and the creation of traffic congestion. Usually cities in the development of three elements of energy, transportation and information technology have a special significance. The present study, fell out with the aim of modern technology to control traffic and the volume of energy consumption in the city of Semnan is considered. The primary question to resolve whether an urban transport management process with respect to the role of new technologies in traffic control and the volume of energy consumption is efficient?Demographic research a number of people living in the town of Semnan that steps through the formulation of the questionnaire and analysis of the two descriptive and face the inference, Chi-square  and Pearson and provide a conceptual model was carried out results of this research shows that the research hypotheses narrowly approved a new technology and intelligent traffic control and effective energy consumption and urban transport management is important, too. In regard to reflect this action in smart provide better planning of urban management and sustainable development through the metropolis.
