The operation of a complex system like a transportation network is considered with respect to the opportunities to identify the application of autonomic properties. The autonomic features of self-properties are analyzed. A multilevel approach is suggested for the formalization of the transport operation. The integration of relevant optimization problems is also considered in the framework of a multilevel, hierarchical scheme of control. The application of bi-level formalism in the transportation systems gives quantitative assessment of the control processes in the traffic control system. The multilevel approach allows the increase of the solution space of a complex optimization problem with an additional traffic control variable, which in the classical optimal formalization participates with fixed parameters in the optimization problem. The benefit of the multilevel control approach is tested in a real network of crossroad sections.
