The Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANET) raises as an emerging technology for smart transport as observed in the recent decade. However, there are some hurdles affect the applications of VANET, the advancement of VANET needed to cope up with the requirement of smart transport in smart cities. The routing is the important factor for having effective communication between smart vehicles, which need to be addressed smartly. Many factors affect the communication between the vehicles such as topology fragmentation which results in the phenomenon of Local-Maximum-Problem that lead to packet delivery failure. The traditional routing schemes failed to address the problem of the trade-off between Packet-Delivery-Ratio and the high cost, in term of End-to-End-Delay, of packet recovery from the failures that occurs frequently because of Local-Maximum-Problem. Therefore, this article works out to analyses the performance of existing position-based routing protocols for Inter-vehicle ad-hoc network and introduced Intersection-based Distance and Traffic-Aware Routing (IDTAR) protocol. IDTAR aims to provide optimal performance in environments of smart transport in smart cities. The experiments evaluate IDTAR against famous position-based routing protocols such as GyTAR, A-STAR-SR and GSR considering several densities of vehicles. Simulation result shows that IDTAR protocol has a fewer End-to-End-Delay and high packet delivery ratio in smart cities circumstances. This concludes that IDTAR can be adaptive for smart transport in smart cities communication with some consideration in terms of its security, compatibility and reliability.
